My family and I are preparing for a very important event this Wednesday; we are all going to consecrate ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus! To say that I am excited about this would be an understatement. I have been praying and planning for this day for the past month and I can't believe that it is almost here!
My sweet and wonderful friend, Fr. Jim Kubicki, SJ, has kindly offered to come to my tiny little house to celebrate Mass and to help us to consecrate ourselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. When I told my sisters about this upcoming event the last time we had gathered for our monthly rosary night, they all insisted upon coming over and helping us to celebrate the Mass and Consecration and to join in the celebratory dinner afterward. This means that there will be seventeen people in my teeny, tiny house, but I know that even though my husband and sons are worried about the cramped conditions that will result from so many people in our house at the same time, God will see to it that our hearts filled with love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus will crowd out any difficulties that may occur. And let me tell you, a heart filled with love was exactly what I needed to get me through this past weekend of final preparations!
