November 23, 2020 Reflection – Close to the Heart of My Son Jesus!

Close to the Heart of My Son Jesus! November 23, 2020 St. Columban St. Clement I Dear Family of Mary! Day 5 of our Novena for our countries and the world! Here is our inspiration.  Our Lady speaks to St. Faustina: “My daughter, what I demand from you is prayer, prayer, and once again prayer, for the world and especially for your country. For nine days receive Holy Communion in atonement and unite yourself closely to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. During these nine days you will stand before God as an offering; always and everywhere, at all times and places, day or night, whenever you wake up, pray in the spirit. In spirit, one can always remain in prayer.” (Diary 325) November 25, 2004 “Dear children! At this time, I call you all to pray for my intentions. Especially, little children, pray for those who have not yet come to know the love of God and do not seek God the Savior. You, little children, be my extended hands and by your example draw them closer to my Heart and the Heart of my Son. God will reward you with graces and every blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our job at this time is to stand as an offering before the Lord, drawing through our prayer as many souls as possible into the loving Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  Nothing else will solve the terrible problems of our day.  Let us pray this Invocation to the Heart of Jesus as we stand before Him in prayer and intercession.   INVOCATIONS TO THE HEART OF JESUS (With an Act of Oblation.) Heart of Jesus in the Eucharist, I adore Thee. Sweet Companion of our exile, I adore Thee. Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, I adore Thee. Heart solitary, Heart humiliated, I adore Thee. Heart abandoned, Heart forgotten, I adore Thee. Heart despised, Heart outraged, I adore Thee. Heart ignored by men, I adore Thee. Heart, Lover of our hearts, I adore Thee. Heart pleading for love, I adore Thee. Heart patient in waiting for us, I adore Thee. Heart eager to hear our prayers, I adore Thee. Heart desiring that we should pray to Thee, I adore Thee. Heart, Source of fresh graces, I adore Thee. Heart silent, desiring to speak to souls, I adore Thee. Heart, sweet Refuge of the hidden life, I adore Thee. Heart, Teacher of the secrets of union with God, I adore Thee. Heart of Him Who sleeps, yet ever watches, I adore Thee. Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. Jesus Victim, I wish to comfort Thee; I unite myself to Thee; I offer myself in union with Thee. I count myself as nothing before Thee; I desire to forget myself in order to think of Thee, to be forgotten and despised for love of Thee, not to be understood, not to be loved, except by Thee. I will hold my peace that I may listen to Thee; I will forsake myself that I may lose myself in Thee. Grant that I may quench Thy thirst for my salvation, Thy burning thirst for my sanctification, and that, being purified, I may bestow on Thee a pure and true love. I would no longer weary Thine expectations; take me, I give myself to Thee. I entrust to Thee all my actions my mind that Thou mayest enlighten it, my heart that Thou mayest direct it, my will that Thou mayest establish it, my misery that Thou mayest relieve it, my soul and my body that Thou mayest feed them. Eucharistic Heart of my Jesus, Whose Blood is the life of my soul, may it be no longer I who live, but Thou alone Who livest in me. Amen. In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2020
