It seems like it might be a good idea to draw people’s attention to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Particularly for broken families, it might be important to focus on the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. For instance it might help them to focus on the love of Jesus and Mary and on any wounds in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. People with broken hearts might find such consolation in meditating on any of these wounds as well as strength and grace to overcome any relevant struggles that they are having. Anybody that has been hurt in any way or who is suffering might find a great amount of help in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and with that in mind, broken families might find a loving and generous home in the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart if they practice true devotion to them.
Promises associated with Devotion to the Sacred Heart
I recommend familiarizing oneself with the twelve great promises associated with devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. They are helpful for people in broken families. For instance one of the promises involves establishing peace in the families of those who are devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and another promise has to do with consoling these people in their various troubles.
Enthronement to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Enthronement to the Sacred Heart of Jesus helps with conversion within families, and I highly recommend that people do that if they can, especially broken families. Broken families might need the conversion. It might ensure that everybody in the family remains Catholic. Entrusting our family members to Jesus through His Most Sacred Heart might help with their conversion and salvation, and I recommend entrusting them to His Sacred Heart however we can.
The First Friday devotion helps to ensure our salvation, and I recommend that everybody does it. If we do it, we are promised the grace of final repentance – in other words, repenting before death. It is a great grace! If we have any family members that might be in need of repentance, we might also be able to do this devotion for that person, and that will help to ensure that person’s salvation. It would be great if people in broken families do this devotion for their family members to help them to be saved, and there might be benefits for the family as well if people are saved.
The Five First Saturdays devotion, requested by Our Lady of Fatima, is something wonderful for our souls as it helps with our salvation. It gives us an opportunity to go to Confession regularly and receive the Eucharist more than once in a week – helping us with the challenges of life and ensuring that our basic spiritual needs are being met. It should be done more than once, and we can do it for others, as well.
The Rosary helps us to focus on the love of Jesus and Mary expressed through the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary when we meditate on the Mysteries. Furthermore Our Lady of Fatima wants everybody to pray the Rosary every day with peace as one of the intentions. We might find that our love for Jesus and Mary grows as we pray the Rosary everyday, especially if we do it with love. Additionally we might be able to obtain certain intentions through the Rosary that otherwise could not be obtained. It might be especially helpful for broken families to pray specifically for peace and love within their families as that might improve the family circumstances. It might also be helpful for them to pray for the conversion, salvation, repentance, final repentance, and final perseverance of their family members and themselves using the Rosary.
The Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
This Litany is an efficient way of practicing devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Doing this Litany every Friday might help us to focus on Christ’s love and the Sacred Heart, grounding us in this devotion and Christ’s love.
Novenas and the Feast Days of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Doing novenas to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary might help us to specially honor the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart, while providing a means of obtaining whatever needs we or others might have. In addition doing these novenas might help to prepare us for the feast days of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, so we can observe them with greater devotion than we otherwise might observe them. Furthermore observing these feast days with devotion helps us to cultivate devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, aiding in living a life of Christian charity in imitation of the love of Christ and His Mother Mary.
The Chaplet of Divine Mercy
Devotion to Divine Mercy is related to devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and it is helpful to keep that in mind when cultivating devotion to Divine Mercy. It seems like a lot of spiritual growth could occur if we cultivate these devotions with an eye to their relationship with one another since they are both so important and their relationship is so important. If we can, praying the Divine Mercy chaplet everyday at 3 p.m. preferably might be an excellent practice. I understand that that might be a challenge for people’s work and school schedules, but simply praying the chaplet everyday whenever we can would be great as well if we cannot pray it at 3 p.m. No matter what we are doing perhaps we can try to meditate on the Passion at 3 p.m. if we cannot pray the chaplet at that time. That might be a helpful way of cultivating devotion to Divine Mercy with busy schedules since meditation on the Passion at 3 p.m. was recommended in association with this devotion, and it might be easier to manage in some cases than the chaplet.
Marian consecration – consecration to Mary or consecration to Jesus through Mary – helps to root ourselves in devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and live as Christ wants us to live in practice, imitating Mary and therefore also Jesus. If we live this consecration well, we might become Saints. Yes – Saints! It is amazing to imagine that, but this consecration is the stuff of sanctity. True Devotion to Mary by St. Louis de Montfort is an excellent introduction to Marian consecration and devotion to Mary in general, and the method of Marian consecration in this book is an excellent way of practicing Marian consecration. Many people do it, and it seems beneficial. In addition the Five First Saturdays devotion is actually a means of consecrating ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary – a reason for doing this devotion.
Meditation on the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Meditating on these topics is so invaluable, and meditating on them together is wonderful. I highly recommend doing these things. Meditating on the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary helps to cultivate love for Jesus and Mary and to learn about various aspects of the love of Jesus and Mary that we can imitate – to help us become closer to God and love Jesus and Mary as we should.
