Welcome to the Sodality of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
The Sodality of the Sacred Heart - Archdiocese of Johannesburg - welcomes you to our website!
The Sodality, one of the Spiritual Families within the Catholic Church, is rooted in the authentic teaching and unity of the church and has its own particular gift and contribution to make. The gift of the Sacred Heart Sodality is to unite Catholic men and women, 18 years and older, who wish to honour the love and compassion of the Heart of Christ in a special way through a life of worship and service.
With the more than 5000 members, it is the largest sodality in the Archdiocese of Johannesburg, and it is hoped that this website will be instrumental in attracting many more new members!
Prayer by St Margaret Mary Alocoque
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, you desire so ardently to shower your favours upon the unfortunate, and to teach those who want to advance in the school of your love, you continually invite me to be meek and humble of heart like you. For this reason you convince me that in order to gain your friendship and to become your true disciple, I can do nothing better that to try henceforth to be truly meek and humble. O Jesus, permit me to enter your heart as I would a school. In this school, teach me the science of the saints, the science of pure love. O Good Master I shall listen attentively to your words: “Learn of me, for I am gentle and humble of heart and you will find rest for your souls”
