Helpful how-to and other resources are available at the Sacred Heart Enthronement Network, which was established to help those who want to live out and actively promote devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Those who enthrone the Sacred Heart can register the enthronement at that network to join the Sacred Heart Revival, which is described as a 2023 campaign to “fan the flames of love for the Sacred Heart and spread the devotion far and wide so that He may once again reign from pole to pole in our hearts and in our homes.”
The steps to follow for enthronement of the Sacred Heart can be found here.
3. Pray to the Sacred Heart.
Catholics pray in a special way this month for Christ’s love and truth to spread throughout the world so that someday, all the world will honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
While appropriately prayed in the nine days leading up to the solemnity of the Sacred Heart on June 16, the novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus can be prayed at any time in June.
Many other prayers to the Sacred Heart are particularly meaningful this month. There are a number of beloved aspirations that can be said throughout the day to connect quickly with Christ:
“Sacred Heart of Jesus, make my heart like yours.”
“Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in you.”
“Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in your love for me.”
“Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, grant that I may love you more and more.”

4. Seek out the Sacred Heart.
A special visit or pilgrimage to a parish or chapel dedicated to the Sacred Heart is fitting this month. If there is a statue or image of the Sacred Heart at a church near you, bring flowers to lay before it, or bring loved ones there for prayer.
5. Share the love of Christ’s Sacred Heart.
Devotion to Jesus’ Sacred Heart is a celebration of the reign of Christ’s infinite love. Sharing the love of Christ this month might include doing acts of kindness for friends or family members, spending extra time in prayer, or helping someone in need. Visiting Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament seems especially appropriate this month.
The devotion to the Sacred Heart can be shared with loved ones and friends, including grandchildren and students. Some families may use a Holy Hearts pop-it or Sacred Heart coloring pages as fun and engaging entry points to explain why this month is dedicated to honoring Christ’s Sacred Heart and the mystery of his love.
