Joseph until His public life. Lazarus, Mary and Martha were
honored with His frequent visits to their home in Bethany.
Your home can
also be a haven for Jesus just like in Nazareth
and Bethany, a place for Him to rest amid loving
friends and family. You can enthrone His Sacred

June is the month dedicated to
the Sacred Heart devotion and the feast day is officially
celebrated for 2012 on June 15, remembering the apparitions of
our Lord to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, in which Christ revealed
His Sacred Heart to her and told her to “behold
the Heart that has so loved men” but has been
loved so little in return.

and enlighten us in our deepest questions of life,” said
RC consecrated woman Celine Kelly.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I have asked You for many favors, but I earnestly
implore this one. Take it, dear Jesus!
in your open, broken, precious Heart and when the Eternal

not refuse it. It will be no longer my prayer,
but Yours, O Jesus.
O Sacred Heart of
Jesus, I place all my trust in You.
Let me not be disappointed. Amen.
