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
