Recipes for June :: Month Dedicated to the Sacred Heart

The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  

Glory, honor, eternal praise be given Thee, O Heart of Jesus! May all the world adore Thee!   Blessed be the love, the infinite goodness of the same dear Heart which impelled Thee, for love of us, to be born of a humble Virgin, to die upon the Cross and shed all Thy Blood in order to redeem and save us.

Sweet Heart of Jesus, be my love!

  1. Hi, Jessica! :) My name is Lisanne, and I live near Albany, NY. I've posted on your website before (Mary cupcakes). I just sent you a message from my cell phone ... I made a triple-layer yellow cake (yellow for "gold," or the glory of God) for Trinity Sunday tomorrow and wanted to show you. I used white sugar sheets and cookie cutters to make the crown (Father), cross (Son), and dove (Holy Spirit). Thought it turned out well! Thanks for your time!

  2. I just wanted to say I really love these monthly posts! Thety help remind me of all the upcoming feasts and give me great ideas for meal planning. Thank you jessica!
