SH Novena 2nd Day : Tender Heart


Scripture: Luke 7:11-14
“Now soon afterwards, He went to a town called Nain, accompanied by His disciples and a great number of people. When He was near the gate of the town, it happened that a dead man was being carried out for burial, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a considerable number of the townspeople were with her. When the Lord saw her, He felt sorry for her. ‘Do not cry’, He said. Then He went up and put His hand on the bier, and the bearers stood still, and He said, ‘Young man, I tell you to get up.”

Nain apparently was, and is, a very small town where a woman grieves the loss of her only son. This moment speaks to the willingness of Jesus to be where He is needed, irrespective of who needs Him or the size of the location. He stops with you as He did with the grieving mother. Tenderness is truly a blessing.

O, Sacred Heart, may I see, at this moment, Your tender heart and Your abiding presence. This woman’s grief is real and present, and today there are many like her. Give me a compassionate heart, eyes to see and ears to hear, the depth of grief being carried by many in my town too. With you, may I encounter and bring peace to troubled and grieving souls. Amen.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, open our hearts to you.

(spend some quiet time in prayer with Jesus … speak to Jesus… hear Jesus… feel His Presence with you)

Closing Prayer for each day

Lord Jesus, Your Sacred Heart is always open, with love, to each of us, especially when we are suffering. To all who come to You seeking Your help, You show Your compassion and healing power. You care for us when we are lost, sympathise with us in loneliness and comfort us in mourning; You are closest to us when we are weakest. You reach out Your hand to us when we stumble and have most need of Your help. I ask You to listen to my prayer during this Novena, and grant what I ask. …

If what I ask is not for my own or other’s good, grant me always what is best, that I may build Your kingdom of love in our world.  Amen.

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