Devotion to the Sacred Heart June 10

Sacred heart 10

Considerations—Let us have a grateful love for Jesus Christ, on account of his benefits.  He is our benefactor each instant; no one has ever been or could have been like him.  He saved us from an infinite number of evils; and he procured us a multitude of blessings.  Where would we be without him?  We would be in that place of eternal punishment.  Slaves of sin and of the devil, deserving therefore eternal death.  He, our good Saviour, saved us from that cruel slavery and prevented our falling into the eternal abyss.  If we worthily respond to all its benefits, he himself will be throughout eternity our reward.

Prayer—O Jesus, my treasure and love! The offences I have committed make me unworthy of loving Thee, but, I pray Thee through Thy merits, to render me worthy of Thy pure love.

Ejac—I have found the heart of my king, of my father, of my friend Jesus: what more can I desire in heaven, or seek upon earth?
