Home Enthronment

Hector recently asked about my home enthronement, so I wanted to explain. This is a devotion that recently developed in my area; I had my home enthroned on the Feast of the Transfiguration this past summer. We even remodeled part of our home and turned the room into a prayer room.

The devotion is based on the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Each family receives the two images and places them in a prominent place on the wall a few days before the main ceremony. Then the Legion of Mary came to our home along with our priest, although a priest is not required, and we read a series of prayers for the enthronement. Afterwards each member of the family signs a piece of paper pledging to say certain prayers each day. The evening prayers include three Hail Marys, three Glorias, three times: "Sacred Heart of Jesus Have mercy on us" and a few others.

The devotion has really been a blessing and the promises for this devotion are truly wonderful as well.

Thanks Moneybags. This is beautiful. I have pictures of the sacred heart of Jesus and immaculate heart of Mary by my prayer altar, but I did not do a beautiful ritual like you. You have a very nice life of devotion. I linked to you.

By the way, do you know that your site is the only one I go to that gives me pop-up adds?
