There are many opportunities for Devotion and Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to dedicate especially this month.


The SSPX US District has a page dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus including a link to a printable page of An Act of  Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Litany to the Sacred Heart of Jesus which can be found here.   What follows are links to other readings related to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. 


GENTLE REMINDER:   Friday, June 16 - 7:00 PM   Sung Mass at Queen of Angels to Honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus 



Pope Pius XI’s 1928 encyclical Miserentissimus Redemptor, beckon the faithful to cultivate a spirit of reparation to Our Lord’s Sacred Heart. June, which Holy Mother Church designated as the month in which the Feast of the Sacred Heart is celebrated, is a time for Catholics to make regular visits to the Blessed Sacrament, offering prayers and sacrifices for their sins and those of all mankind.

Recommended by Fr. Brandler:  The Glories of the Sacred Heart, by Henry Cardinal Edward Manning.  (This is an ebook version) 

A bit of information about Cardinal Manning: 

Henry Edward Manning (15 July 1808 – 14 January 1892) was an English prelate of the Catholic church, and the second Archbishop of Westminster from 1865 until his death in 1892. He was ordained in the Church of gland as a young man, but converted to Catholicism in the aftermath of the Gorham judgement.                                     

In this work, Cardinal Manning unfolds for us the devotion to the Sacred Heart, placing it upon the foundation of the dogma of the Incarnation, and the worship due to the Sacred Humanity of Christ. He likewise unites it the devotion towards the Blessed Sacrament, a union insisted upon by the great visionary of the Sacred Heart, Saint Margaret Mary.
