The Messenger Sacred Heart Novena is one of our most popular publications each year. It is held for the nine days leading up to the Feast of the Sacred Heart, which is always celebrated nineteen days after Pentecost. Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is considered a symbol of "God's boundless and passionate love for humanity". Many have found comfort and solace praying the Novena, and this year we have particular reason as a community, a nation and a global people to find strength, patience and reassurance in God’s love for us. As a way of encouraging and supporting our readers and promoters, we have made the 2020 Novena available to download from our website FREE OF CHARGE.  Simply click here  to visit the page and either view the booklet on your computer or print it off to use during each day of the Novena. NOTE: The Novena is also available as a pull-out supplement in the June Messenger.  ___________________________ A SELECTION OF SUMMER READING Why not take advantage of our special offer of FREE POSTAGE  on all book orders to Ireland and the UK while the current restrictions apply?
