Fire and Thorns: A Retreat Guide on the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Not sure how to use this retreat guide?

Pope Benedict XVI called devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus “irreplaceably important.” Pope Pius XI called it “the very epitome of our religion.” Why is this devotion so central? And if it is, how are we supposed to tap into it and live it to the full? That’s what this month’s Retreat Guide, Fire and Thorns: A Retreat Guide on the Sacred Heart of Jesus will explore.

In the First Meditation, we will ponder the amazing invitation at the core of this devotion. In the Second Meditation, we will dig into the deeper meanings behind the symbols that Jesus himself chose to associate with this devotion. And in the conference, we will review the tried and true practices that can connect us more intimately to Our Lord’s Most Sacred Heart.

  1. Thank you for another beautiful “helping of soul food”!!! You are in my prayers that God will shower your work with His bounteous blessings! AMDG

  2. Loved this retreat, thank you so much! I really liked how it was set out in sections and I now have a deeper understanding of the Sacred Heart, And how to respond to Him that loves so much… God bless you🙏

  3. I have been spending time before the Bkessed Sacrament for years now due to the urging of a beautiful talk on prayer but I feel this has led me deeper into the heart of what I’m doing. You often ponder why sometimes are so silent and other times I’m overwhelmed by his presence . Thank you for this I know I didn’t stumble upon this by accident. I may be able to better explain why the hours of adoration are so important.

  4. The Sacred Heart of Jesus shows us how much he loves us, even though; we are far away from him. He is the same God yesterday, today and for ever. He just wants us to return our love.
    By meditating the world of God, It make me to keep my eyes on Jesus and to be more close to Him. He promises He will never leaves us nor forsake us. I love the retreat. It was wonderful!! Thank you. And
    God bless you all.

  5. Thank you Father. I’m grateful for your commitment to Jesus’ Sacred Heart, and for sharing it with us. What a great consecration to follow St Joseph’s and to begin anew following COVID-19.
