June is the Month of the Sacred Heart


As May was the month of Mary, our Blessed Mother, and June is the Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, does it not follow that as May leads into June, Mary leads us to her the love of her Son, symbolized by His Sacred Heart?

Love for the Eucharist

Christ's Sacred Heart of love is expressed most profoundly in the Blessed Sacrament. The Eucharist, God's giving of Himself, is celebrated joyously the Feast of Corpus Christi, which typically falls within the month of June. How appropriate this is! Devotion to the Eucharist and to the Sacred Heart are as  inseparable as devotion is to the mystery of Christ's human and divine love. In the Sacred Host dwells the God-man, Jesus; in His Person pulses His Heart through which we are loved with the perfection of His humanity, the fullness of His Godhead, one Person who not only loves but is Love.

St. Peter Julian Eymard instructs us, “Let us learn to honor the Sacred Heart in the Eucharist. Let us never separate them.”

Use the month of June to get acquainted or re-acquainted with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. You'll be glad you did!
