Enthronement of the Sacred Heart

Enthronement of the Sacred Heart

On June 16, 2023, Fr. Rafael Querobin, SCJ, pastor at Our Lady of Guadalupe, Houston, TX, welcomed 80 families to participate in the Sacred Heart Enthronement for their homes. Packets containing the Enthronement booklet, pictures of the Sacred Heart and Blessed Mary along with a certificate of their enthronement were shared with each family to bless their home.

This past September, the Priests of the Sacred Heart celebrated 50 years of service at Our Lady of Guadalupe and 100 years of the parish existence.

At the Sacred Heart Parish in Appleton, WI, Fr. Fr. John Czyzynski, SCJ also spoke on the Enthronement. "When most people talk about devotion to the Sacred Heart they will mention the promises of the Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, the nine first Fridays and enthronement of the Sacred Heart in the home. Those are good pious practices, but they are not the real essence of true devotion to the Sacred Heart. True devotion to the Sacred Heart is not about some pious practices. It is a lifestyle, a way of living that is dedicated to living in loving obedience to God that is expressed in genuine love for our sisters and brothers."

Fr. John continues, "Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is what is truly needed in our world today," said Fr. John. "There is so much anger, conflict and hatred going on all around us and we cannot help but be affected by it. What keeps being emphasized are the differences among us and we are failing to remember what we all have in common. We are all sons and daughters of God, brothers, and sisters to one another. We need to push against what is going on all around us and be people of heart like the Heart of Jesus and resist all that division. We need to let our hearts be touched by what is going on around us and reach out with our hands in loving service of one another."
