Today’s Scripture

‘Jesus looked at the rich young man and loved him.’
As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, ‘Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus said to him, ‘Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: “You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; You shall not defraud; Honour your father and mother.” ’ He said to him, ‘Teacher, I have kept all these since my youth.’ Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, ‘You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.’ When he heard this, he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions. Then Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, ‘How hard it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!’
(Mark 10:17-23 NRSV)

Reflection for the First Day

There was a French mystic who said: ‘Lord you gazed on me and you smiled!’ Imagine the Lord close to you and smiling. What better to do than to smile back? Allow yourself to do this and tell him how it makes you feel. Relax and enjoy being loved by him.

Today’s Prayer

Lord, I come to you full of needs. But my deepest need is to become more convinced of your love for me. Help me to believe that you do smile on me, now, tomorrow and always. Amen. Sacred Heart of Jesus I place all my trust in you.

Daily Invocation

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

Novena Prayer

You can use the novena prayer below or open your personalised novena prayer.

Lord work on my heart until it becomes like your Sacred Heart.
Give me hope.
Then I can love you and all my sisters
and brothers with the respect, compassion, and forgiveness that you have for everyone.
I ask this in your name.

I ask you to grant my special request during this novena
(here mention your intention).

If what I ask is not for my own good and the good of others,
grant me what will most help
to build up your kingdom of justice, love and peace.
I make this prayer with confidence in your love.
