Cutting and pasting some ideas from Mary Vitamin
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, Visionary of the Sacred Heart
“One Friday, during holy Mass, I felt a great desire to honor the sufferings of my crucified Spouse. He told me lovingly that He desired me, every Friday, to adore Him Thirty-three times upon the Cross, the throne of His mercy. I was to prostrate myself humbly at His feet, and try to remain there in the dispositions of the Blessed Virgin during His Passion.”
Activity for children: Children can cut 33 paper hearts. Brainstorm prayer ideas to be written on hearts. Eleven ideas are sufficient. Place hearts in a small basket in front of an image of the Sacred Heart. Encourage children to pick a heart and make a prayer.
Brainstorm ideas from the Glories of Mary by St. Alphonsus di Liguori
~Saint Antoninus, "while other martyrs suffered by sacrificing their own lives, the Blessed Virgin suffered by sacrificing her Son's life, a life that she loved far more than her own.
~"Whoever then was present on the Mount of Calvary," says Saint John Chrysostom, "might see two altars, on which two great sacrifices were consummated; the one in the body of Jesus, the other in the heart of Mary."
~Mary heard her Son exclaim, "I thirst," but she could not even give Him a drop of water to refresh Him in that great thirst. She could only say, as Saint Vincent Ferrer remarks, "My Son, I have only the water of tears.
~Jesus meek and humble of heart make my heart like unto thine.
