Cardinal Burke Speaks Lovingly of Devotion to Sacred Heart of Jesus

Today, as we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I invite you to take two minutes to watch this video of Cardinal Raymond L. Burke speaking with great affection regarding his family’s devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus:

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

In the video, Cardinal Burke suggests enthroning an image of the Sacred Heart in our homes. Although I am a life-long Catholic, this devotion is not something my family has had in our home. Today, I spent some time seeking and found this wonderful explanation of how to enthrone the Sacred Heart in our homes at I am praying about the possibility of bringing this devotion into my home, but from reading the materials online it obviously requires a tremendous family commitment. I would love to hear from families who have committed themselves to this devotion.

A question for you: Has your family formally made the commitment to enthrone the Sacred Heart of Jesus in your home? What blessings has this devotion brought you?
