10 Lovely ways to bring the Sacred Heart into your life

What the month of June means to Catholics and how to honor it in your home..

Did you know that in the Catholic Church, each of the 12 months of the year has a devotional theme? It’s a great way to bring special traditions, symbols, colors, and even foods into our faith life at home.June is the beautiful month of the Sacred Heart. Continuing our monthly series on ways to showcase each month’s Catholic theme in your life, here are 10 ways you can more closely align your life and home to the Sacred Heart. Perhaps some of these wonderful devotions will stick around your family even after June is over!

1) Set the table or a prominent place in your home with an image of the Sacred Heart and a candle or bouquet of flowers as a constant visual reminder of devotion.

2) Do a Sacred Heart craft with your kids. Here’s an easy one: get a grapevine wreath resembling the crown of thorns and place in the center of your kitchen or dining table. Have the kids make a large heart out of construction paper to place in the middle of the wreath. Upon the heart, each member of the family writes a prayer intention and/or a work of mercy they will offer to the Sacred Heart all month.
