Litany of the Sacred Heart

Pastor’s Column

Corpus Christi 2016

The Catholic Church has a long tradition of offering us a prayer known as a litany as a way of praying deeply. With the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus this Friday, it is my hope that many of you will keep this litany and use it to enrich your prayer life. This prayer is filled with tremendous and biblical titles of Jesus, which form the prayer. Father Gary
