Sacred Heart of Jesus
The Sacred Heart of Jesus devotion is one of the most popular in the Catholic Church today. The imagery of Christ pointing to his human heart on fire with love serves to remind us of Christ's immense and infinite love for humanity, radiating out of His Divine and Sacred Heart, which took Him to the cross to die for our salvation. The Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated on the eighth day of the Feast of Corpus Christi, nineteen days after Pentecost Sunday. Jesus appeared in visions to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque asking that this feast be celebrated in reparation for the ingratitude men have for His sacrifice of love on the cross. To increase your devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, choose a beautifully crafted plaque, framed artwork, or statue to inspire devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in your home. Books and prayer cards on the Sacred Heart are also available to increase your devotion to the attribute of Christ's Divine Love through meditation and prayer.
