All seven lessons are available now!

The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The goal is not simply a devotion to the Sacred Heart, but to enter fully and completely into the Sacred Heart of Jesus - to step into the shelter of his infinite love and mercy. To enter into the heart of Jesus is to enter into the loving abode and warmth of God. Think about that for a moment. Think about resting safely in the heart of the Savior of the world!

When we reflect on the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we find his love for us is unveiled in magnificent splendor. There are many aspects of his divine love, many chambers within his heart, each leading deeper into the mystery of his Divine Person and the infinite well of love that flows forth from the Lord Jesus. And each of them is accessed by accepting his healing mercy.

Accept the mercy and love Jesus offers. Don’t hesitate. Don’t be afraid to let him draw you into his Sacred Heart. Know and trust that he will heal you. Transform you. Make you anew. Once you rest safely in his heart, you will never be the same again. 

Objective:  In this 7-lesson course, students will learn how to enter into the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Students will learn all about what the Sacred Heart of Jesus means to our faith and why it is so important to accept the love of our Lord.
