Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

 

The Litany to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is profoundly inspired by the Bible and

at the same time it reflects most profoundly the experience of the human heart.

Mother Teresa not only loved to pray the Litany to the Sacred Heart she also

used it for her meditation let us hear her say to us:

"I was making meditation on the Litany of the Sacred Heart. I want you to do the same...

Go slowly over it."

"As you pray, look at Jesus, looking at you and loving you!

In the Scriptures we read Jesus telling us, 'Come to me all you who are heavy burdened

and I will give you rest!'

(Mother Teresa of Calcutta)
