Step 2: Enthrone the Holy Family

What?

During this very important step, you will prepare for, learn about, and do the ceremony to enthrone a Holy Family Image and Sacred Scripture in your home. You will also be introduced to 3 powerful devotions: the Rosary, the Miraculous Medal and the Brown Scapular.

Why this step?

Fr Kevin tells you why in this video=>
 A)  A Little Faith= Big Blessings
Our Lord confounds the pride of the devil by abundantly blessing simple acts of faith! Throughout the Bible God asks His people to trust Him in small ways and He provides spectacularly. He asks for: a few loaves & fishes to feed thousands, a simple sign on the Israelites doorposts to save the lives of their first born, etc.

B)  Amazing Promises

Our Lord promised St Margaret Mary Alacoque that He would “bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored.”
St Joseph promised “peace among men & nations” if we honor him “in union with Jesus and Mary.”

How to do this step?

(1) Prepare

Priest, Supplies & Checklist

Decide whether or not you will have a priest lead the enthronement ceremony or do it yourself. You could ask the priest to bless your home and also perform the optional (but recommended) Brown Scapular & Miraculous Medal ceremony.


 

(2) Learn

Videos, Amazing Stories & Pray along Rosary

This section is very powerful! The stories, explanations & videos below will help you and your family better understand the promises attached to these devotions. Also, the stories of miracles associated with these devotions are God’s confirmations that He keeps His promises! 


 

(3) Ceremony

Ceremony Video, Prayers & Certificate 

This is a most special moment in your family history! Through this ceremony, you are responding to God’s desire to honor the Holy Family. You imitate the Holy Trinity in honoring Jesus, Mary & Joseph! As you have learned, this devotion protects you & your family and will open you up to many graces(God’s helps)! Be sure to celebrate with a special treat for yourself & the children!


 

(4) Encourage Priests and Bishops

Why encourage them?

Because they know that faithful families are needed and even crucial in transforming the world into the God’s Kingdom!

“We need holy families, lest the church and the world would perish.” Bishop Nickless
