|Efficacious Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender Mother and ours.

This is an interesting 9 day period.
Maybe the two of you, if others also have ideas, help with with setting up the format for the Novena.
We could form a committee of three to help form the Novena.
By the way, what is the Feast of the Visitation of the Virgin Mary? Is that the Annunciation or is that when she visits her cousin Elizabeth. Normally, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart follows the Feast of the Sacred Heart.
I do like the Litany of Loretto as part of it as well.
I would like to get the format setup in advance so it is nice -- if nothing else to honor Jim Robinson.
WOuld it make the Novena too long with too many prayers? Some people might be able to spend an hour on the novena a day, and it would be time well spent.
God bless, and thanks for the input...
