The feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is quickly approaching! Do you know how to pray the novena?

If not, here’s how:

St. Padre Pio prayed the Efficacious Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus every day for the intentions of those who requested his prayers. St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, the saint most well-known for spreading devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, wrote this prayer.

The faithful pray this novena nine days before the feast of the Sacred Heart. This year, the Church prays the novena every day from June 19-27. This year’s feast of the Sacred Heart is on Sat., June 28, 2019.

However, the novena may be prayed at any time throughout the year.
