On Saturday August 20, 2011 Pope Benedict XVI will consecrate the pilgrims of World Youth Day to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  With this act it is intended to accomplish the aim of every World Youth Day: that  young people be brought closer to Christ. As we prepare for this consecration through catechesis, prayer, and pilgrimage we ask that you pray this novena with us for a continued outpouring of grace upon the Diocese of Raleigh.  We will begin praying the novena below on August 11, 2011 and end on August 19, 2011, the day of the consecration.

Thank you in advance for your continued prayers for our group!

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender Mother and ours.

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy; hail, our life, our sweetness & our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning & weeping in this vale of tears.  Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us; & after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V./ Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,

R./ That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

 St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.
