A quick review!

1) First, what is the Sacred Heart of Jesus Enthronement?
The Enthronement of the Sacred Heart in the Home is the recognition of Jesus as King of the family (or for any of the other various groups where the Enthronement takes place).
The Enthronement is more than a mere blessing of a Sacred Heart picture or statue or the mere dedication of the family or group's devotion to the Devine Heart. It is a WAY OF LIFE. It is recognition of Jesus Christ's Royal Power over all who are enthrone to live and/or work in union with Jesus by love, grace and obedience to His Commandments.
In this way, the Enthronement brings countless graces and blessing on the people, sanctifies them and through the people, society.

2) Who is its Apostle?
Father Mateo Crawley-Boevey, SS CC., a South American priest of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary was the modern apostle of devotion to the Sacred Heart and founded this movement on August 24, 1907 -- upon his instantaneous cure at Paray-le-Monial where he visited the grave of St. Margaret Mary, who received the 12 Promises of the Sacred Heart during numerous apparitions by Jesus in the1670's.
