Entrust your friends and family to the loving care of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus is a beautiful expression of God’s love for humanity. This devotion shows that Jesus loves us so much, his heart bursts out of his chest.

Recognizing this immense love for humanity, we can pray to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, asking him to cover our loved ones with his mercy.

Here is a prayer from the early 20th century that asks God to pour down blessings upon your friends and family.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pour down Your blessings abundantly on Your holy Church, on the Supreme Pointiff, and on all the clergy. Grant perseverance to the just, convert sinners, enlighten unbelievers, bless our parents, friends, and benefactors, assist the dying, free the souls in purgatory, and extend over all hearts the sweet empire of Your love.
