Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

 The litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is devoted to the physical heart of Jesus Christ. The Sacred Heart is considered a symbol of the boundless love and compassion of Jesus that conquers all sins.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus is often shown as the pierced heart of Jesus. Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is devotion to Christ Himself.

The beginnings of the devotion are found in the fathers of the Church, including Origen, Saint Ambrose, Saint Jerome, Saint Augustine of Hippo, Saint Hippolytus of Rome, Saint Irenaeus, Saint Justin Martyr, and Saint Cyprian.

Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was popularised by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque a Roman Catholic nun from France in the 1670s who claimed that she learned it during various visions she had of Our Lord. In 1856, devotion was added to the church calendar by Pope Pius IX.
