RENEWAL OF THE ENTHRONEMENT OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

RENEWAL OF THE

ENTHRONEMENT OF

THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

 

You have proclaimed the Sacred Heart of Jesus as the King of _____________.  Here are some ways that can help you keep the Enthronement alive.

 

Say this renewal prayer daily:

Dear Sacred Heart of Jesus, we renew our pledge of love and loyalty to you.  Keep us always close to your loving Heart, and to the most Immaculate Heart of your Mother.  May we love one another more each day, forgiving each other’s faults as you forgive us our sins.  Teach us to see you in the members of our family and those we meet outside the home, loving them as you love them, especially the poor and oppressed, that we may be instrumental in bringing about justice and peace.

Please help us carry our cross daily out of love for you and help us strengthen this love by frequent participation in the Celebration of the Eucharist.  Thank you, dear Jesus, for all the blessings of this day.  Protect us and all families during this night.  Help us to live that we might get to heaven.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come!

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for our family!

St. Joseph, friend of the Sacred Heart, pray for us!

Our patron saints and guardian angels, pray for us!  Amen.

 

On certain occasions gather around your Sacred Heart shrine for a more formal renewal of the consecration.  For this purpose you may use the act of Consecration used on the day of your Enthronement.

Suggested occasions for this more solemn renewal are:

First Fridays                Birthdays                    Weddings

Baptisms                     Anniversaries              First Communions

Anniversaries              Family Reunions         Departure from Home

Thanksgiving              Christmas                    New Year’s Eve

 

On the anniversary of your Enthronement, or if you move, it is suggested that you repeat the entire ceremony.  It is also suggested that you complete the Preparation Novena prior to your renewal ceremony.  In this way you give a new token of your love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus and ask for His continued blessings.

 

Since one of the purposes of the Enthronement is to bring you closer to Jesus in the Eucharist, the following practices are recommended:

Celebration of the Eucharist, as often as possible and especially on Sundays

Faithful use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation

ScriptureReading

            SpiritualReading

Holy Hours in the Home and Eucharistic Adoration inChurch.

Monthly First Friday and First Saturday celebrations

Celebration of Solemnities or Feasts of the Holy Body and Blood of Christ, Sacred Heart, Immaculate Heart of Mary, and Christ the King

Make a difference for Christ in society

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART

RECTORY

 

Facing the image, the rectory now makes its covenant with the Heart of Jesus, our Lord and Friend.

 

PREIST:  We will kneel and renew our covenant with the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

 

ALL PRIESTS:

Lord Jesus, to continue Your work as Mediator, Teacher, Sanctifier, and Reconciler, You selected apostles and priests from among men.  From Your own words we know that this was an unmerited choice, for You told us, “You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you.”

 

Today, we priests are assembled in Your name, to renew our joyful acceptance of this gratuitous choice; to express our sorrow for the many times we have failed You, and to promise You greater fidelity in the future.

 

We want Your Father to be able to say to each of us, as He said of You, “This is My Beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased.”  And likewise what He said of David, “A man after My own heart.”  We will be priests after Your own heart, if we imitate Your gentleness and humility, as You Yourself taught us, “Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart.”

 

At the Last Supper, You instituted the priesthood of the New Testament, and gave priests the power to offer the Eucharistic Sacrifice in Your name.  At the same time You established a covenant of love and mercy with Your priests and people and wrote the law of this covenant in their hearts.

 

Freely and gratefully, we renew this covenant.  At the same time we renew the consecration we made to Your Heart on the day of our ordination.  Without any reservation on our part, and relying on the graces we received with the laying on of hands we affirm:

 

ALL THAT THE LORD SAYS, WE WILL HEED AND OBEY.

 

Fully and painfully aware of the truth of Your words, “Without Me you can do nothing,” we promise to intensify, or if need be, rectify our prayer life, mindful that we have been delegated to offer sacrifice, to pray in Your name and in the name of theChurch.

 

In a spirit of reconciliation, we will endeavor to practice patience, kindness, forbearance and forgiveness toward all men.  But especially towards our brother priests with whom we live, and towards those priests most in need of understanding, counsel and companionship.

 

Finally, we who preach Your commandment to “Love one another as I have loved You,” but who so often have failed to practice what we preach, in a spirit of atonement for our sins of commission and omission now sincerely ask You:

 

Take our hands – make them instruments of helpfulness and self-sacrifice for others.

 

Take our lips – let them speak words of sympathy, justice, peace and truth.

 

Take our hearts – make them gentle, humble, generous and pure.

 

In Your merciful kindness, You announced the good news to the poor – in our words and deeds we will be joyful messengers of Your love and concern for those in want, materially and spiritually.

 

With deep compassion You came to the sick – we will continue to bring You to the sick and suffering, to the lonely and rejected.

 

You forgave sinners – help us always to show mercy to sinners, to give them joyfully the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

 

O Lord, help us to understand that true love means self-sacrifice.  By the sacrifice of Your own will and inclinations, may we show to all men that we are truly Your disciples, ready to serve and not to be served.

 

We entrust the fulfillment of this covenant to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Queen and Mother, asking her to make up by her love what we lack in loving generosity.

 

“Glory be to Him whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine:  Glory be to Him from generation to generation in the church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever.  Amen.” (Eph. 3:20-21)

 

The Lord bless us and keep us!

 

The Lord let His face shine upon us and be gracious to us!

 

The Lord Look upon us kindly and give us peace!

Facing the image, the religious community now makes its covenant with the Heart of Jesus, our Lord and Friend:

 

ALL MEMBERS OF THE RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY:

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, who revealed to St. Margaret Mary Your ardent desire to reign over the whole world, behold us assembled here this day to proclaim Your absolute dominion over our community.

 

Henceforth we desire to live with Your life among us so that the virtues may flourish for which You promised peace on earth, and for this end we will banish from our midst the spirit of the world which You abhor so much.

 

You will reign over our understanding by the simplicity of our faith.  You will reign over our hearts by an ardent love for You; and may the flame of this love be ever kept burning in our hearts by the fervent offering of Mass and devout reception of the Holy Eucharist.

 

Be pleased O Divine Heart to preside over our meetings, to bless our undertakings both spiritual and temporal, to banish all worry and care, to sanctify our joys and soothe our sorrows.  If any of us should ever have the misfortune to grieve Your Sacred Heart, remind him or her of Your goodness and mercy toward the repentant sinner.

 

And when the hour of separation strikes and death enters our community, whether we go or whether we say, we shall all bow humbly before your eternal decrees.  This shall be our consolation:  to remember that the day will come when our entire community, once more united in heaven, shall be able to sing of Your glory and goodness forever.  May the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the glorious Patriarch St. Joseph vouchsafe to offer You our act of Consecration, and to keep the memory thereof alive in us all the days of our lives.

 

Glory to the Heart of Jesus, our King and our Friend!

It is our desire to make a covenant of love with You.  From now on we are determined to live Your Life.  In this school we want to live and to see flourish the virtues which are so pleasing to You and which You promised would bring peace on earth.  We desire to keep far from us the spirit of the world which you condemned.

 

You will rule over our minds by the sincerity of our faith.  You will rule over our hearts by our burning love for You alone, and we will keep this fire of love ever burning on our hearts by the frequent reception of the Holy Eucharist.

 

Divine Heart, preside over our gatherings, bless our undertakings both spiritual and temporal, ward off all dangers, sanctify our joys and lighten our sufferings.  If one of us should have the misfortune of displeasing you with sin, remind him or her, O Sacred Heart, that You are full of goodness and mercy towards the repentant sinner.

 

May the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our glorious protectorSaint Joseph, and our guardian angels witness this, our act of consecration, and keep us ever mindful of our commitment to You, all the days of our life.  Such a commitment extends to our parents, teachers, and other authorities who stand ready to love, guide, and protect us.
