The Feast of the Sacred Heart, celebrated in June, is very special to us. Our full name is Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus. Our older friends may remember when we were called the Sons of the Sacred Heart. Names have changed but the continual reference to the Sacred Heart remains.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart was one of the pillars of St. Daniel Comboni’s spirituality and ministry. The Heart of Jesus is the living symbol of His love for us. It is what we missionaries vow to imitate and pray to make known. Please consider a gift to help us celebrate the Sacred Heart and to continue our work.
A Prayer to the Sacred Heart
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing,
I adore You. I love You and, with a lively sorrow for my sins,
I offer You this heart of mine.
I rejoice in the gifts I have received from your Heart.
Grant that I may live in You and You in me.
Open my heart to share Your life.
Make me humble, patient and obedient to Your will.
Protect me in difficulty and danger.
Give me health of body, mind and spirit.
Bless all that I do.
Through the intercession of St. Daniel Comboni,
grant that the Church may grow in holiness.
