Papal Visit suggestions 3 - Novena to the Sacred Heart

The official resources booklet for the visit of Pope Benedict reminds us that John Henry Cardinal Newman, who is to be beatified during the visit, had great devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. One way to prepare for the visit would be to make a novena (nine days of prayer) in preparation, praying for yourself, for others, and especially for Pope Benedict.

At the back of the Church, there are copies of a Novena Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. For other resources see the website for The Papal Visit.
