Feast of Saint Bruno, Priest, Hermit and Religious Founder |
Blessed Marie Rose Durocher, Religious Foundress
FIRST FRIDAY - Devotions to the Sacred Heart
Most Holy Heart of Jesus, shower Your blessings abundantly upon Your holy Church, upon the Supreme Pontiff, and upon all the clergy and religious. Grant perseverance to the just, convert sinners, and enlighten unbelievers. Bless our relatives, friends, and benefactors. Assist the dying, deliver the holy souls in Purgatory, and extend over all hearts the gentle empire of Your love. To You, most merciful Heart of Jesus, we commend all these souls, and in their behalf we offer to You all Your merits in union with the merits of Your most Blessed Mother and of all the Angels and Saints, together with all the Masses, Communions, prayers, and good works which are being offered this day throughout Christendom.
Taken from the Treasury of Novenas for Devotion to the Sacred Heart on First Friday.
