Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Jesus, we know that You are merciful
and that you have offered Your heart for us.
It is crowned with thorns and with our sins.
We know that You implore us constantly
so that we do not go astray.

Jesus, remember us when we are in sin.
By means of Your Heart, make all men love one another.
Make hate disappear from amongst men.
Show us Your love.
We all love You and want You to protect us
with Your Shepherd's Heart
and free us from every sin.

Jesus, enter into every heart!
Knock, knock at the door of our heart.
Be patient and never desist.
We are still closed
because we have not understood Your Love.

Knock continuously, O Good Jesus,
make us open our hearts to You
at least in the moment we remember
Your Passion suffered for us.
