3 Pope’s Quotes

It is altogether impossible to enumerate the heavenly gifts which devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus has poured out on the souls of the faithful, purifying them, offering them heavenly strength, rousing them to the attainment of all virtues.

Pius XII, ‘Haurietis Aquas’, May 15, 1956

“…Since there is in the Sacred Heart a symbol and a sensible image of the infinite love of Jesus Christ which moves us to love one another, therefore is it fit and proper that we should consecrate ourselves to His most Sacred Heart-an act which is nothing else than an offering and a binding of oneself to Jesus Christ, seeing that whatever honor, veneration and love is given to this divine Heart is really and truly given to Christ Himself.”

Leo XIII, ‘Annum Sacrum’, 25th day of May, 1899

“Is not the sum of all religion and therefore the pattern of more perfect life, contained in that most auspicious sign and in the form of piety that follows from it inasmuch as it more readily leads the minds of men to an intimate knowledge of Christ Our Lord, and more efficaciously moves their hearts to love Him more vehemently and to imitate Him more closely?”

Pius XI, ‘Miserentissimus Redemptor’ 8 May, 1928

Why Enthrone?

“What is the object of this work?┬á …

  • “to set up in the place of honor in each household a representation of the Sacred Heart, in recognition of the supreme rights of Jesus Christ over the family as a whole, and over each of its members;
  • “to recite family prayers each evening before it, and to renew each night, by the lips of the father or mother, the consecration made on the first day;
  • “to be faithful in the practice of holy Communion and as far as possible, in that of the Holy Hour at the First Friday of the month;
  • “to meditate upon the lessons and examples given to us by the Sacred Heart;
  • “to have recourse to this fount of graces, in the family joys, as well as in its sorrows, in good as well as in evil days, in sufferings, in reverses, in partings, amid the tears shed at the grave-side, and amid the smiles bestowed upon the cradle; in a word, amid the all the events tht interrupt the normal and regular course of family life.”

Cardinal Billot, April 26, 1915
