Focusing on the Sacred Heart of Jesus in June

Daily reminders of the Sacred Heart of our Lord

Do you have things that you plan to do each day but do not get to them?  Do you sometimes even give your word to your children, spouse or friends and then end up having to break your promises because of lack of time or energy?  If so, you are in good company.  If you are a homeschooler, then these can be regular occurrences. 

As June begins, Mother church helps us recall the promises that our Lord gives us in the devotion to His Sacred Heart.  In fact, when Jesus appeared to St. Margaret Mary over four hundred years ago, He gave us at least twelve promises of help to those who would honour Him.  Do you remember what the twelve promises are?  What's more, do you remember them on a regular basis?

The twelve promises from Christ are:
  1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state in life.
  2. I will give peace in their families.
  3. I will console them in all their troubles.
  4. They shall find in My Heart an assured refuge during life and especially at the hour of death.
  5. I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
  6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
  7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.
  8. Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection.
  9. I will bless the homes in which the image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and honoured.
  10. I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.
  11. Those who propagate this devotion shall have their name written in My Heart, and it shall never be effaced.
  12. The all-powerful love of My Heart will grant to all those who shall receive Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months the grace of final repentance; they shall not die under My displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Heart shall be their assured refuge at the last hour.
Our resource to share today is a new monthly over-sized wall calendar featuring the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  The images used were selected to allow children to colour the individual pieces while still providing classic colour images as well.  This is a creative first for us in this popular style resource, but we thought it would be a nice interactive change that would allow for lots of art practice and blending of colours using coloured pencils.  

Each image represents the Sacred Heart.  The flames coming forth from His heart remind us of our Lord's burning love for us and His wanting us to love Him in return. The crown of thorns reminds us of the sacrifice required to make up for sin.

We hope this helps you to remember to focus on Christ and His love for us daily and to remember the promises that our Lord gives us which He is never too tired, overwhelmed, or short on time to follow through on.
