A Craft in Honor of the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart


I’m linking to an older post of mine that has a craft that we enjoyed as part of honoring the Most Sacred Heart.

June – Month of the Sacred Heart – A Craft


Revisiting that post was fun – the young lady that was crafting the Sacred Heart in that post has now graduated, is working as a summer intern at a wonderful job, and has gotten her new photography business off to a great start!  That’s one of the really neat things about blogs – revisiting all of my older posts brings back really wonderful memories!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the post, and do let me know what you’re doing to honor the Sacred Heart in your home this year!  I’m open to super simple since right now much of our crafting materials are put away as we prepare for renovations.  I’ve got some reading lined up though, and if nothing else, we’re going to honor our home image of the Sacred Heart on the Solemnity, and assist at Mass that day, which will be wonderful!  Hit me with your favorite liturgical year reading recommendations for the month of June!!

A blessed June and Solemnity of the Sacred Heart to all of you!

  1. Thank you for sharing the craft. A friend of mine keeps telling me that I need to read The Devotion to the Sacred Heart by Fr. Jean Croiset, published by Tan Books. If you haven’t read it yet, she highly recommends the book. I hope to read it one of these days. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!

    1. Thank you again for your blog… I’ve followed off and on for years. I have a small but huge question for you. I feel a bit like I’m being called back to the Catholic Church after a generation away… But feel insecure how to approach or explore it. Do you have any books you’d suggest or recommendations on how to approach or visit a church or two?

      1. Anne,
        I’m humbled by your question and I will start by praying for you! This blog exists to serve Our Lord, and your question is such a humble reminder of its reach. May it always be pleasing to Him!

        Goodness, the choice of book recommendations in this matter can be pretty personal and unique, and it could also really be influenced by your particular journey {which I’m not privy to}. How about this – why don’t I suggest a few Catholic publishers that are trustworthy? If you browse these sites and a book’s description “speaks” to where you are in your faith journey, you can be certain that the books offered by these publishers will not lead you astray in your faith journey:

        TAN Books and St. Benedict Press: https://tanbooks.benedictpress.com/index.php
        Ignatius Press: http://www.ignatius.com
        Sophia Institute Press: http://www.sophiainstitute.com

        Now…on the matter of which church to visit…check with your local homeschoolers. Which parish do many of them attend – those are often good parishes with holy priests. Ask around for a holy, orthodox priest – your local friends should be able to point you in the right direction. This is probably the first step to take since talking with a holy priest will allow you to speak personally and Father will be able to give you gentle and faithful direction. I will pray that you may find a holy priest to meet with, and to ask more personal questions so that he can advise you on book recommendations that will always be faithful.

        May you find your answers within His Most Sacred Heart, Anne! And since Our Blessed Mother is always tenderly watching for us and always faithfully pointing us to Her Son, may Her motherly guidance be your companion on this journey. May God bless your sincere seeking after Him with answers that are so generous and abundant that you cannot begin to even imagine them! Many, many prayers, Anne!!

        1. Thank you so very much! I’ve looked at Sophia Institute Press and already see a title that I will look into. My oldest is just beginning homeschooling K next year… so I also need to build up a greater homeschooling community and have been looking for fellow homeschooling families for friends. Perhaps it will all fall in line together and that is a good place to start. I’m trying to walk slowing through it all. I grew up going to Mass in the summers with Grandparents… After a very long time and lots of other explorations the Catholic Mass feels like my religious home. Again I want to thank you for your blog. I found you originally probably looking for Charlotte Mason homeschoolers… I came back because I too adore all things turquoise or cornflower blue and organizing… But as someone speaking from earlier in the process, with my oldest still very young… I often feel very new to this chapter of my life and like I’m still figuring out how to do it all. Your blog gives help, ideas, solace, inspiration, and fun. The way I’ve felt connected with you when you talk of your faith, and the way I’ve related to it, has been a small piece in this journey for me.
