The Month of June is Dedicated to the Sacred Heart

June is the Month of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus – where we proclaim to the world that “God is Love.”

To celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and to express to the People of God in the Diocese of Rockville Centre the true definition and nature of Love according to God’s design, the Diocese plans to celebrate June 2023 as a month devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The theme for this month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is, “God is Love” from 1 John 4:8, 16.

“Our hope is to renew and advance the beautiful tradition of contemplating God’s love for humanity – shown so powerfully in the Pierced Heart of the Savior, during this time,” said Bishop Barres. “We need His love, as does every dimension of the global public square. Therefore, under the theme God is Love, we pray that a renewed devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus this June will open us to God’s love and moral teaching. As our Lord says in John’s Gospel: ‘If you love me, keep my commandments.’” (John 14:15)
