A Message From Our Director
According to the Gospel of John 19:33, when Jesus was dying on the cross "one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water." The celebration of the Sacred Heart is associated with the physical sacrifice, the mystery of both blood and water pouring from Christ's chest, and the devotion God asks from humankind. Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is devotion to Jesus Christ Himself.

Jesus’ Heart goes out to you. He does not hide his love.

Devotion to the Sacred Heart is the top devotion of all devotions. It is the awareness of God’s love that inspires all prayers and devotions. It’s the mystery of God’s love for us as His Heart continues to reach out for us. His heart was open and always remains open for all of us.

The Heart of Jesus is the fountain of love that seals our hearts to achieve our destiny. Our God has a deep desire to unite his heart with our own. Your prayers, attitude, and reflection will foster and deepen your relationship with the Heart of Christ!

The mystery of the Sacred Heart drove Mother Cabrini to understand human hearts and to respond in concrete ways as an instrument of God’s love.

In the Gospel of Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus invites us: “Come to me, all of you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart: and you will find rest for yourselves, for my yoke is easy and my burden light.”

Memorare to the Sacred Heart

Remember, O most sweet Jesus, that no one who has had recourse to Thy Sacred Heart, implored its help, or sought its mercy was ever abandoned. Encouraged with confidence, O tenderest of hearts, we present ourselves before Thee, crushed beneath the weight of our sins. In our misery, O Sacred Heart of Jesus, despise not our simple prayers, but mercifully grant our requests.

DAY OF GIVING, MASS & RENEWAL OF VOWS
The Shrine’s Day of Giving is an online fundraising campaign conducted for 24 hours inviting us to be inspired by the loving Heart of Jesus to bring love, courage, and compassion to others.

All funds raised will go toward the reinvigoration and enhancement of Faith Formation Programming.

Support the Missionary Sisters in their mission and their true love for serving others through the Heart of Jesus.

"Together we are love made visible."

Follow your heart through an act of generosity by donating to the Shrine at cabrininationalshrine.org. Our hearts remain eternally grateful to you for your support. Thank you for allowing our work to continue.

Join us as we celebrate The Feast Day of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. During Mass, our Missionary Sisters will renew their vows.

Together, they commit to living Mother Cabrini's passion by staying deeply rooted in their love for the Heart of Jesus through prayer, discipleship, and spreading devotion to the Heart of Jesus by means of their practice of spiritual and corporal works of mercy.

Father's Day

God our Father,
In your wisdom and love you have created us and called us your own. Bless our fathers, that they may be strengthened as Christian fathers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
In moments of joy, rejoice with them. In times of struggle, give them your courage and perseverance. Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor and appreciate them always with a spirit of profound respect. May the example and prayer of St. Joseph inspire them to live their vocation with courage.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

FROM THE DEVELOPMENT CORNER

Preserve the Memory of a Loved One on
Mother Cabrini's Wall of Remembrance

Among the gems within the Shrine is Mother Cabrini’s Wall of Remembrance (located up the chapel stairs and to the right). Plaques on the wall are a beautiful and sacred way to honor those you love and is something that remains forever.
Have you Considered a Recurring Gift to the Shrine?

Recurring giving is when a donor chooses to make a regular,
ongoing donation instead of a one-time gift. 
The gift can be made in any amount of your choosing and you indicate the frequency - weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. 
This way of giving provides the Shrine with a reliable stream of revenue and allows us to plan more long term. For you, it is a beautiful way to express your devotion and generosity to Mother Cabrini, our Missionary Sisters and to the Shrine.

If a recurring gift is a practical option for you, please click here

If you have questions or require additional information regarding Mother Cabrini’s Wall of Remembrance or in making a recurring gift to the Shrine,
kindly contact Sr. Bridget at 773-360-5733 or Barb Willis at 773-360-5746.

The Shrine is reliant on your support so that we can continue our mission in bringing God to people and people to God. All of us here at the Shrine remain deeply grateful for your support. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
