The Sacred Heart

The feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated this year on Friday, June 7th. Among Catholics and many Christians, pictures of the Sacred Heart and devotions to the Sacred Heart are popular because His Heart represents His love, care, mercy, and protection for each one of us…

The Sacred Heart

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus began with the early Church Fathers and has grown to be a favorite devotion among Catholics.

Most Sacred Heart

June is the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Several saints received messages and visions from Jesus about His great love for all of us in spite of our sins and laxity. One of these saints was Sister Josefa Menendez, a Spanish nun who lived from 1890 to 1923. She joined the French Order of the Sacred Heart, and for the rest of her life, she suffered and prayed and wrote down the messages that Jesus directed her to write. Her story, as well as all the messages, are contained in the book The Way of Divine Love.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

This year we celebrate the feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus on July 1. This feast day, though not a Holy Day of Obligation, nevertheless is surely one of the most revered of all feast days. There are likely more people dedicated to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus than to all the saints combined. It is a devotion that even Protestants practice, as evidenced by the many pictures of the Sacred Heart in their homes.
