Doon

Feast of the Sacred Heart - Friday next, 1st July is the Feast of the Sacred Heart. The sacred heart picture shows the heart of Jesus shining with divine light, pierced by the wound of a lance and surrounded by a crown of thorns. It is a powerful image of Christ’s love. Jesus asked St. Margaret Mary that this picture be displayed in our homes and he promised that many blessings would follow including peace in our homes and the grace of final repentance.
