Today on the Feast of Christ the King, Pope Piux XI recommended a special prayer of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Join with us below:
Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Most Sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before your altar.
We are Yours and Yours we wish to be; but, to be more surely united with You, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Your most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known You; many, too, despising Your precepts, have rejected You. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Your Sacred Heart.
Be King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken You, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned You; grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Reign over those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be one flock and one Shepherd.
Grant, O Lord, to Your Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry:
Praise be to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to It be glory and honor forever. Amen.
"Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice;
Let the sea and what fills it resound;
Let the plains be joyful and all that is in them.
Then let all the trees of the forest rejoice." Psalm 96:11-12
