I’m very excited to say that we were recently able to have our home and family enthroned to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Overall, the ceremony was incredibly simple, but I can already feel the graces blooming from it.
I found an image of the Sacred Heart (as well as the Immaculate Heart) and prayed for Mary’s help in finding just the right spot in our home to hang the frames, invited the parish priest over for the ceremony and to stay for lunch afterwards, and then I set up the altar. We went to Mass the morning of (and didn’t even lose patience or freak out when our van broke down in the church parking lot afterwards and threatened our enthronement ceremony!).
All in all, it was a simple yet wonderful ritual that I highly recommend to all families. And then, of course, there was food – pasta, wine, and dessert…how can you go wrong?? 😛
I made a fruit pizza from Sally’s Baking Addiction (doubling the recipe) and use strawberries, blueberries, and chocolate chips to make a Sacred and Immaculate Heart design.
And in Episode 125 of The Catholic Mama podcast, I detail the Enthronement ceremony how-to’s as well as why we should devote ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the 12 promises of Our Lord if we do. You can download the episode here or or listen to it on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play or iHeartRadio.
