Sacred Heart Month, Song Release, Study Guide and Imprimatur!

By Royce.   What a busy few months!  Really a busy year.  This is my music update, in particular this post focuses on Sacred Heart is the Boat, which will be included on the upcoming Bellum Sacrum album. First, let me state that I spent countless hours writing, recording and editing the track Sacred Heart is the Boat.  I am really happy with how this production turned out (after nearly 6 months in the studio)!    Second, the Study Guide was a labor of love created to help readers consider their own devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.   The Study Guide is available as a free download via the page: Below are a series of posts made to Facebook addressing al of the above!

Sacred Heart Month (posted to FB on June 1):

To celebrate June, aka Sacred Heart month, I’ve officially pushed Sacred Heart is the Boat out for digital distribution. It should be available June 7 across all mainstream streaming apps. Free download and accompanying Study Guide at Join me by making a commitment to attend Mass on the first Friday, June 3, along with the preceding first Friday’s for nine consecutive months.
June is the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Jesus made 12 incredible promises for those that have a devotion to His Sacred Heart:
1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
2. I will give them peace with their families and will unite families that are divided.
3. I will console them in their troubles.
4. I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.
5. I will bestow the blessings of Heaven on all their enterprises.
6. Sinners shall find my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.
8. Fervent souls shall rise quickly to great perfection.
9. I will bless those places wherein the image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored. I will imprint My love on the hearts of those who would wear this image on their person. I will also destroy in them all disordered movements.
10. Iwillgivetopriests,animatedbyatenderdevotiontomyDivineHeart, the gift of touching the most hardened of hearts.
11. Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in my Heart never to be effaced.
12. The Greatest Promise – I promise you in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate (Receive Holy Communion) on the First Friday in nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence: they will not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving the Sacraments. My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
To develop your own devotion to the Sacred Heart here are a few starting tips:
1. Go to confession.
2. Go to mass on the first Friday of every month for nine months straight.
I’ve created a free downloadable study guide on the very basics of devotion to the Sacred Heart. Just visit where you can download the song and study guide for free.

Special thanks to Fulton and Francis.  There is no question in my mind that Sacred Heart is the Boat was only made possible because of our dear Fulton and his little brother Francis.   Fulton sparked the fire for me to make more music.   He and Francis continue to inspire me to aim for heaven.  Pax Christi!
