Sacred Heart Novena, Day 9 

Thou comprehendest all I need, dear Lord!
To win my heart, from heaven Thou didst come;
For me Thy blood didst shed, O King adored!
And on our altars makest Thy home.
So, if I may not here behold Thy Face,
Or catch the heav’nly music of Thy Voice,
I still can live, each moment, by Thy grace,
And in Thy Sacred Heart I can rejoice.
~Excerpt from a poem by St. Therese of LisieuxTo the Sacred Heart

Jesus, Meek & Humble of Heart, Make My Heart Like Unto Thine
