Sacred Heart: Morning Offering
- Feast Day of the Sacred Heart: 19 days after Pentecost Sunday
What's the best thing you can give God at the start of your day? A Morning Offering!
People have begun their days with passionate prayers to God for centuries, but this Morning Offering is the best-known today. It absolutely offers God everything in our day while reminding us of the importance of praying for others, including the Pope!
We chose our radiant original portrait of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to complete this inspirational design, a design we hope will help your family start their day with hearts open to God and offering Him everything the day brings.
Personalize it for a special devotional gift. This is a popular gift choice for Grads and hard-to-buy-for Dads!
The Morning Offering, so beautiful in its simplicity and universality, was composed in 1844 by Fr. Francois Xavier Gaulrelet, founder of the Apostleship of Prayer (known today as the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network). As the spiritual director for young Jesuits Fr. Gaulrelet saw his normally enthusiastic students becoming frustrated at the long road ahead of them: they were eager to be ordained and sent on mission to distant lands! The Morning Offering was his invitation to everyone to be missionaries no matter where they were through a simple offering to God of everything they were doing. Our inspirational Sacred Heart: Morning Offering Prayer Pillowcase helps Catholics of all ages and circumstances embrace Fr. Gaulrelet's invitation!
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in reparation for my sins, for the intentions of all my relatives and friends, and in particular for the intentions of our Holy Father. Amen
