Heart of Jesus, pierced with a lance, have mercy on us.

But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. (John 19:34)

The Gospel of John is the only account of the Crucifixion that includes the piercing with a spear.
Also of note: The piercing of the Sacred Heart is the very last act of violence that was done to Jesus.
