Sacred Heart of Jesus & St. Joan of Arc

Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon me, humbly prostrate before you. I am yours and yours I wish to be. But to me more surely united with you, behold I freely consecrate myself to your most Sacred Heart. Many in this world have never known you. Many, despising your precepts, have rejected you. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to your Sacred Heart.
Be King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken you, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned you. Grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house, lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Be King of those who are deceived by error, by bad opinions, those whom discord keeps away. Call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith so there may be but one flock and one Shepherd.
Grant, Lord, to your Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm. Give peace and order ot the nations. Make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation. To Your Heart be glory and honor forever. Amen.

"About Jesus Christ and the Church, I simply know they're just one thing, and we shouldn't complicate the matter." - Saint Joan of Arc, as recorded at her trial
