In another thread, there was a discussion about the Sacred Heart devotion…
I’ve always been drawn to this devotion and I’ve read a bit about it but I’ve never really practiced it entirely. For example, I’ve never done the first Friday devotion, though I’d love to, - mostly because I couldn’t go to Mass on Fridays.
I have a picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in my room and I like to look at it often when I pray. I also feel that this devotion is related to reparation for sin but I haven’t read enough about it to confirm this.
I’d love to study the devotion further, does anyone have any book recommendations?
I was also thinking…every devotion in the Church has a purpose… for example, the Divine Mercy devotion is to help people undestand and accept God’s mercy. What is the purpose of this devotion? Again I feel it’s something quite profound but don’t really know and can’t put it into words. I wish I could read more about this devotion but dont know where.
