PODCAST: Pray the Litany to the Sacred Heart with me, everyday in June!


Elizabeth Scalia - published on 06/09/17

Regular readers know that I am very much devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Church dedicates the month of June to the Sacred Heart, and Aleteia has recently published some interesting pieces about how to make an enthronement to the Sacred Heart in one’s home.

Some years ago, I hosted a podcast, and lately I have felt like taking it up again, so look for new podcasts here on my blog — I’ll be reading or discussing some pieces I find interesting, talking to book authors and otherwise playing around. Today, though, I’m very serious as I invite you to pray the Litany of the Sacred Heart with me, everyday, through the month of June. It is such a wonderful, calming, instructive litany, I feel like everyone who gives it a try will want to do it again. To pray it along with me, just click!

*after each invocation, respond with “have mercy on us.” Lord, have mercy Christ, have mercy Lord, have mercy Christ, hear us Christ, graciously hear us.
