Contents Commemoratio Sacratissimi Cordis Iesu
Commemoration of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

From the Roman Breviary for the Feast of the Sacred Heart (Friday after the Second Sunday after Pentecost).

AD Iesum autem cum venissent, ut viderunt eum iam mortuum, non fregerunt eius crura, sed unus militum lancea latus eius aperuit, et continuo exivit sanguis et aqua. COMING to Jesus and seeing that He was already dead, they did not break His legs, but one of the soldiers opened Jesus' side with a spear and immediately there came forth blood and water.
V. Haurietis aquas in gaudio.
R. De fontibus Salvatoris.
V. You shall draw waters with joy.
R. From the fountains of the Savior.
Deus, qui nobis in Corde Filii tui, nostris vulnerato peccatis, infinitos dilectionis thesauros misericorditer largiri dignaris concede, quaesumus; ut illi devotum pietatis nostrae praestantes obsequium, dignae quoque satisfactionis exhibeamus officium. Per eundem Dominum ...
R. Amen.
Let us pray:
O God, who in the Heart of Thy Son, wounded for our sins, dost mercifully lavish upon us the treasures of Thy love; grant, we beseech Thee, that with our devout homage we may also offer Him worthy reparation. Through our Lord...
R. Amen.
