Honoring the Heart of Jesus

From the depth of my nothingness, I prostrate myself before Thee, O Most Sacred, Divine and Adorable Heart of Jesus, to pay Thee all the homage of love, praise and adoration in my power.
~St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

The prayer of the Church venerates and honors the Heart of Jesus just as it invokes His most Holy Name. It adores the incarnate Word and His Heart which, out of love for men, He allowed to be pierced by our sins. Christian prayer loves to follow the way of the cross in the Savior's steps.
~CCC #2669

There is a free download PDF booklet of Sacred Heart prayers thanks to the Heart to Heart Apostolate

Though I have Byzantine Christian devotional leanings, I doubt that I would kiss this guy's back?
Not brave enough for a tattoo like this? How about something temporary for your next church picnic??
