Click to Play

Homily #150612b ( 11min) Play – Fr. Alan explains why the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is so appropriate as a remedy to the problems of our times.

Father suggests home enthronement of the Sacred Heat of Jesus as a practical way of following this devotion for the whole family.
