Did you know that each month has a traditional Catholic devotion? We can focus on each devotion month-by-month to grow in our faith and traditions. Make yourself notes, write them on your calendar, and pray a specific prayer each day of the month to remember. You could use a prayer already associated with the devotion or pray a personal one.

The entire month of June is devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus has a cross, flames, crown of thorns, and blood. Each of these has special meaning so that we can remember His love for us. The cross points to His sacrifice, the flames are his purifying passion, the crown of thorns reminds us of His suffering and kingship, and the blood reminds us of the side wound during His death. He spilled all of His blood for us.
