’I will reign through my heart, despite Satan and his agents’ - Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary of Alacoque

Why Enthrone an Image of the Sacred Heart in Your Home?

In the Twelve Promises made to St. Margaret Mary, as they are usually enumerated, the ninth promise reads, “I will bless the homes in which the image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and honored.” This invitation, to place an image of His Sacred Heart in a prominent place in a home, has been the catalyst for the re-introduction of this devotion into the mainstream of Catholic life in several cities in the United States.

Can I Enthrone for children who have left the Church?

The Enthronement is on behalf of your whole family living and deceased. We look to the Promise of the Sacred Hear that shares, "I will pour out an abundant blessing on their undertaking, I will give peace to their families, I will bless the homes (dwellings) in which the Image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and honored."

Our Trust is in The Heart of Jesus.

We do not believe "family" is reserved for those who live in your house, the family is your blood-line... family is your children. The Enthronement is a great way to gain new peace and graces for your family!

Can I Enthrone without family present or without consent?

What is difference between Enthronement and Consecration?

A consecration to the Sacred Heart is a prayer by which one sets apart themselves or a place as belonging to the Sacred Heart.

An Enthronement is an action, involving prayer, by which one inaugurates the beginning of Jesus having a throne, taking a throne, in the life of someone or a place.

They are related yet distinct. A consecration is what we do to belong to the Lord, an Enthronement is what we invite the Lord to do to us, make us His by our acknowledging Him as King Brother and Friend.

Why focus on the heart of Jesus?

The Catechism of the Catholic Church summarizes the Catholic view of the centrality of one’s heart to prayer, faith, love and action. “The heart is our hidden center, beyond the grasp of our reason and of others; only the Spirit of God can fathom the human heart and know it fully. The heart is the place of decision, deeper than our psychic drives. It is the place of truth, where we choose life or death.” Therefore, the heart of Jesus, the sinless Son of God, is the perfect source of truth, life and love.

What are the Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus?

Our Lord Jesus Christ appeared to St. Margaret Mary between 1673-1675. Among the words spoken to her, she heard Jesus make several promises to those who would respond to the pleading of His Heart and make an effort to return His love.

The Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to St. Margaret Mary:
(1) “I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
(2) I will establish peace in their homes.
(3) I will comfort them in all their afflictions.
(4) I will be their secure refuge during life, and above all, in death.
(5) I will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings.
(6) Sinners will find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
(7) Lukewarm souls shall become fervent.
(8) Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.
(9) I will bless every place in which an image of my Heart is exposed and honored.
10) I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
(11) Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names written in my Heart.
(12) I promise you in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of final perseverance; they shall not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving their sacraments. My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.”
