I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.

O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore you, I love you and will a lively sorrow for my sins. I offer you this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure, and wholly obedient to your will. Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you.
Protect me in the midst of danger; comfort me in my afflictions; give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, your blessings on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Within your heart I place my every care. In every need let me come to you with humble trust saying, Heart of Jesus, help me. O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you all 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 the Holy Father.
This nine-day prayer is often said prior to the Feast of the Sacred Heart but can be said anytime. O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender mother and ours. I vow to place all of my worries and fears into the wound of your Sacred Heart, there to be tended to in accordance with your perfect will, which desires only the best and highest good.
Your love alone is enough, and I surrender to it; clinging to the hope of a swift resolution and trusting with confidence in all of your promises. Sweet Jesus, your heart beats for the brokenhearted, and you know their pain. You experienced loss when your friend Lazarus died, and betrayal when your friends abandoned and rejected you in your darkest hours. I ask you for relief and release right now in this time of grief. I cry out to your heart, seeking comfort and consolation. Ease my sorrow, and fill my heart with hope and light to face another day. Give me the grace to let go of bitterness, a desire for revenge, and the need for an apology.

You know and see the disorder and chaos that the addiction is causing, and your heart grieves over the distortion of personality and danger to the soul that results when someone is in the throes of addiction. I ask this through the saving grace of your Sacred Heart. Sweet Heart of Jesus, my health is failing, and I am hurting. Thank you for my body, which is a great and marvelous gift and a temple where the Holy Spirit chooses to dwell.
I believe in your healing power and claim your promises of peace, help in all my afflictions, and the grace of final perseverance. Help me to resist all fear, and hide me, Lord, in the haven of your precious heart.

The Holy Spirit wants to teach us who Jesus really is
For the enrichment of our souls with divine grace, We are grateful. Supreme Lord of the harvest, Graciously accept us and the fruits of our toil, In union with Jesus, your Son, As atonement for our sins, For the growth of your Church, For peace and love in our homes, And for salvation for all. We pray through Christ our Lord. O God, we thank you for this earth, our home; For the wide sky and the blessed sun, For the salt sea and the running water, For the everlasting hills And the never-resting winds, For trees and the common grass underfoot.
We thank you for our senses By which we hear the songs of birds, And see the splendor of the summer fields, And taste of the autumn fruits, And rejoice in the feel of the snow, And smell the breath of the spring. Grant us a heart wide open to all this beauty; And save our souls from being so blind That we pass unseeing When even the common thorn bush Is aflame with your glory, O God our creator, Who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Let those of us who have much and those who have little gather at the welcoming table of the Lord.

Whatever joy he found in things made he referred to their maker. He would go through the streets, inviting everyone to sing with him. He makes us blossom, wherever and whoever we are. We blossom because we see in Francis what could happen to us if we were to embrace the overflowing goodness of God revealed in everything that exists, and let that embrace change us.
