When Jesus appeared to St Margaret Mary in the 17th century He gave her, among others, the following promises to those who would be devoted to His Sacred Heart:
“I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life; I will establish peace in their families; I will console them in all their troubles.”
In a world where the family unit is constantly under attack, both from within and from without, we are so deeply in need of entrustment to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Pope Pius XII often recommended the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to newly married couples, saying: “Therefore, dear newlyweds, the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus – the Heart that so loved mankind – must be installed and adored in your homes as would the image of a closest and most beloved relative. This image will pour forth the fullness of His blessing upon you and your children.”
The Enthronement of the Sacred Heart in the family, inspired by our Lord Jesus and supported by several popes, is one of the most powerful weapons to defend and preserve the Christian family in God’s grace and loving care.
Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is the “spiritual anchor” of the family:
“Through the Enthronement ceremony, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, pulsing with the life of God and nurturing each family member with a superabundance of graces, becomes the spiritual heart of the Catholic home.” (Matthew Karmel)
There are 9 additional promises which Jesus gave to St Margaret Mary. Do you know what they are?
