Throughout the month of June, the Church invites us all to reflect on the Sacred Heart of Jesus and what it means to live our lives in such a way that we reveal the loving heart of a merciful Savior to the whole world.

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus reminds us that in His sacred humanity, we find the pattern for our own lives. In His incarnation, that means His saving life and death and resurrection, we receive the pattern and the means to become more and more like Him.

Objective:  In this course, students will learn about devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Students will learn what this devotion teaches us about Jesus Christ and how we can use the devotion to the Sacred Heart in our own lives every day.
