About the Sacred Heart of Jesus Novena
To the friends and benefactors of the Missionary Diocese of Fairbanks.
On the eight days preceding the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and on the feast day itself, a novena Mass will be offered in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and for our benefactors and their intentions. (The cathedral of the Diocese of Fairbanks is dedicated to the Sacred Heart.)
You are invited to submit petitions to be remembered during the novena. No offering is necessary. Any offering received will be used to support our ministries here in Northern Alaska.
O Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, you said: "Ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you."
With confidence in your loving, compassionate Heart I come to you as the fountain of every blessing. I ask you to make my heart humble and holy like yours. Grant me to live a holy life and to die a happy death.
During this novena I humbly ask also for certain spiritual and temporal favors:
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on me!
"Today as ever, the living Christ loves us and offers us His Heart as the source of our redemption." --Pope John Paul II
