Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in homes




What is Enthronement to the Sacred Heart?


“The Enthronement is the official and social recognition of the rule of the Sacred Heart of Jesus over the Christian family, a recognition affirmed, outwardly expressed and made permanent by the solemn installation of the image of the divine Heart in a conspicuous place in the home, and by the Act of Consecration.”


He promises great blessings for families and individuals who honor Him with the installation of a blessed image of His Sacred Heart, proclaim His Kingship over them and make a covenant of love with Him.


The enthronement is a ceremony where Jesus is invited into your home and is given authority over your family/household. It is a ceremony that takes place in your home as an act of homage offered to Jesus Christ, King of Kings. It is a social recognition of the kingship of Jesus over the home and all of society.


The enthronement is an act of reparation to make up for all who have “dethroned” Jesus in our secular world.


In sum is an event where an image of Our Lord’s Sacred Heart is given a place of honor in the home.


The act of Enthronement to the Sacred Heart is an act which takes an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and places this image at the heart of a home, a business, or even a school. The prayers of the Enthronement place the individual, the family, or a community at the feet of our merciful King asking Him to become present in that place as not only our King but also our friend, our brother, and finally our loving Saviour.


The Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in your home is an act of adoration that publicly declares Him as “Lord of the Household.” It is more than setting aside a dwelling place for Him in a building; it is the welcoming of the Reign of Christ into the heart of the family who dwells within that place. He becomes the central focus.


He promises great blessings for families and individuals who honor Him with the installation of a blessed image of His Sacred Heart, proclaim His Kingship over them and make a covenant of love with Him.


This action of enthroning the Sacred Heart has an impact on families and individuals that carries over to society and becomes the basis for spreading the Social Reign of our King and Savior. In this sense, the Enthronement is very much in line with the mind of the Church who wishes to see acts of charity, peace and justice move from the family circle to all society.


The enthronement is a process by which a household invites the Lord Jesus into their home…it brings families together!


Is to make a convenant with Jesus Christ as our Lord, as our savior. It brings out a greater desire to spend time with Jesus in the holy Eucharist.


If you want a home in his heart, then bring his heart into you home.


The resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the death is the foundation of our Faith.


The Sacred Heart devotion brings us back into a relationship with Jesus, thus, bringing the Sacred Heart to your home is to bring the reality of Christ risen from the death in to your home to motivate you, your loved ones and your neighbors to return to the central mystery of our faith: Jesus risen from the death.


By remaining with our Lord in the holy Eucharist, we stay close to his Sacred Heart.


In every Eucharistic miracle scientists have always found that tissue that comes from a man’s heart.


When we consume his blood, his body, his soul and divinity we consume his Sacred heart.


As we continue the process of enthronement of the Sacred Heart in our homes, let us seek to spend time with Him, to make prayers of reparation


The word heart in the Bible is mentioned over a 1000 times


In the Old Testament it refers to the covenant. Often times when God speaks of his desire for a covenant with humanity he refers to the live he has with in his heart, the tenderness and the affection he has for all, for those he has chosen to be his own, his beloved.


Mary is the first disciple of the lord Jesus Christ, she instructs is in how to love him, how to preserve in his teachings.


We ask for her prayers and motherly affection!


The church, the mystical body of Christ is composed by all the children of God.


Each one of us are sincerely invited to be a part of the body of Christ,  the people of God.


Do you seek to have you and your household to be counted as members of the people of God?


If you desire this, then give yourself over to the Lord, continue the journey towards the  enthroning the Sacred Heart in your home, accept the gift that He has made of himself to each one of us.


The lord doesn’t wants us just to leave our home and come to him but He wants to come back to us to our home.


We see this in the conversation between our Lord and Zacchaeus: “Today I must stay at your house”.


Are we willing to receive our Lord in our home?


We need to build an intimacy between our hearts and the heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, an intimacy that can be capitalized by enthroning his image and be faithful to the teachings of the Holy  Catholic Church.


Today is the day!

The enthronement is a way of life. It means that Christ is King of our hearts and we desire him to be present with us always”.
