Prayers of Reparation this Friday June 16 (Feast of the Sacred Heart)


Brother Knights:

Please see the below e-mail message from Supreme Office for the Knights, asking Knights to offer prayers of reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus this coming Friday June 16 for blasphemies and offenses given by the Los Angeles Dodgers by inviting an anti-Catholic group to one of their games. Since many Latin Mass attendees practice devotion to the Sacred Heart, we share this announcement below and encourage Knights to participate. 

The prayers can be downloaded here: https://www.kofc.org/en/resources/communications/litany-to-the-sacred-heart.pdf

Vivat Jesus,

Dear Brother Knight,
On Friday, June 16, Catholics around the world will celebrate God’s love for us on the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is a day to honor Christ’s humble gift of his very self, offered out of deep and abiding love for all of humanity.
This Friday, however, is also the day the Los Angeles Dodgers professional baseball team has chosen to celebrate a group of men who masquerade as Catholic nuns and mock the Virgin Mary, consecrated women, and Jesus Christ himself, through their shocking displays and vulgar behavior. As noted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), the decision of the Dodgers is “not just offensive and painful to Christians everywhere; it is blasphemy.”
In response, the USCCB has called on Catholics to pray the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 16 “as an act of reparation for the blasphemies against our Lord we see in our culture today.”
The Knights of Columbus urges its members to respond to the call of our bishops and make a stand for respect, decency and our Catholic faith. Through prayer and by making reparation, we’ll draw ever closer to Christ’s Sacred Heart, which Pope Francis has said is “the source of love and peace.”
