Winner of a honorable mention award in the family life category from the Catholic Media Association.

Jesus invites you to experience his love through devotion to his Sacred Heart, a powerful source of spiritual and personal healing that can also transform your relationships with family, friends, and others around you.

In Holy Habits from the Sacred Heart, Emily Jaminet—executive director of the Sacred Heart Enthronement Network—identifies ten habits and virtues that come from the Sacred Heart. She also shows how you can intentionally practice these virtues in order to get closer to Jesus and strengthen the relationships that are most important to you.

Having Jesus at the center of family life isn’t reserved for the pious; it’s a form of practical spirituality that is open to everyone. Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus has been a cornerstone of Jaminet’s life bolstering the faith of four generations of her family members. In this book she shares her own story as well as the real-life experiences of regular Catholics whose families have been changed for the better by the love and virtue that came from devotion to the Sacred Heart.

The habits and virtues include:

  • Encounter the King: welcome Jesus into your home with the virtue of docility;
  • Welcome the Light: have courage to rid your heart of shame;
  • Let Go of the Need to Control: rediscover the liberating virtue of humility;
  • Put Jesus at the Center of Relationships: experience the release of forgiveness; and
  • Live in the Kingdom of Peace: experience the transforming power of prudence.

Each chapter includes a prayer, reflection questions, and wisdom from St. Margaret Mary Alacoque—who began the Sacred Heart devotion—and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“A timeless treasure for Catholic married couples and families. Written from her own devotion and love of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Emily Jaminet tenderly illuminates the virtues and graces available to marriages that welcome Jesus to reign in their hearts and homes.” —Carrie Schuchts Daunt, presenter and prayer minister, John Paul II Healing Center

“If we want a strong Church, we need strong families devoted to the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a devotion with roots that go back for centuries. This book offers concrete and practical ways of healing broken relationships within the family and experiencing not only the mercy of the Heart of Jesus but also the joys and delights of his Heart.”Bishop Earl K. Fernandes, Diocese of Columbus

“This book makes it clear that the Sacred Heart devotion is not some sentimental practice of piety from the good old days but is instead an important practice that can help families find hope in the midst of the struggles and challenges of today’s world. In the Litany of the Sacred Heart, Jesus is invoked as the Abyss of All Virtues. Emily Jaminet takes several of those virtues and demonstrates through stories, reflection questions, and practical advice how they can help families and individuals find peace in the Heart of Jesus.” —Fr. James Kubicki, SJ, author of A Heart on Fire

“Even faithful families are a little dysfunctional these days. We all need the peace and direction that flows from Christ. With Emily Jaminet as our guide, we can recenter our hearts and our homes in the Heart of Jesus. Heartfelt testimonies, examples from saints and scripture, and her own experience will touch your heart!” —Fr. Joe Laramie, SJ, national director of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network
