Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Novena to the Sacred Heart is a unique collection of prayers, hymns and music that helps present the devotion to the Heart of Jesus in a way that appeals to many more people.

Sacred Space presents the Sacred Heart Novena audio by arrangement with Messenger Publications who thank and acknowledge all the artists involved for the use of their material for this Novena. The CD of the Sacred Heart Novena is available from Messenger Publications.

Elizabeth Foley, regional Coordinator for Messenger Publications and coordinated the CD project. She says, “For me the Novena never grows old. Each year a different author brings their own unique spiritual journey to bear on the readings so the Novena is constantly refreshed and renewed.”

The Novena texts were written by Brendan Comerford SJ, and the Novena Prayer by Frank Doyle, SJ. Scripture quotations are from the New Revised Standard Version Bible: Anglicised Edition, copyright 1989, 1995, Division of Christian Education of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the United States of America.
