Rosary, Sacred Heart, Immaculate Heart and Divine Mercy
by: The Rosary Team

Some fundamental Catholic devotions are the Rosary, devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the most recent of devotions, devotion to the Divine Mercy.

In this answer, I will try to highlight some of the practices of these popular devotions. There are many other devotions Catholics hold dear. I encourage other visitors to post a comment to this answer telling about their favorite devotion or elaborating on the ones I am explaining here.

This site is dedicated to the Rosary an ancient Catholic devotion. Devotion to the daily recitation of the Rosary will increase your love for Jesus and bring much peace to your life.

Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary has a long history and has been promulgated by many saints whom Mary and Jesus both appeared to requesting this devotion. Some of the practices that go along with this devotion are daily recitation of the Rosary, wearing the Brown Scapular, making a daily Morning Offering, making five first Saturdays of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart. The five first Saturdays of Reparation consist of going to Confession, receiving Communion, praying the Rosary and "keeping her company" for 15 minutes while meditating on all of the Mysteries of the Rosary.

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus began when Jesus appeared to St. Margaret Mary asking her to spread this devotion. This devotion consists of consecrating yourself to the Sacred Heart by acknowledging Jesus as the Creator, Redeemer and recognizing His Kingship. You must repent and faithfully serve Him. Besides repenting for your own sins, you must make reparation for the sins against His Sacred Heart committed by the whole world. This devotion has specific practices which include receiving Communion often, attending Mass, receiving Communion and going to Confession on the nine consecutive first Fridays of the month, attending one hour of Eucharistic Adoration each Thursday, and by celebrating the feast of the Sacred Heart.

Jesus appeared to St. Faustina and asked her to spread devotion to His Divine Mercy. This devotion includes the recitation of the Divine Mercy chaplet to be prayed using rosary beads, celebrating Divine Mercy Sunday on the Sunday following Easter, and by displaying the Divine Mercy image in a prominent place in your home. The ABC's of Divine Mercy are: "Ask for Mercy, Be merciful to others, Champion mercy (spread this devotion)."

This is just a highlight of some of the most popular devotions practiced by Catholics. I hope others contribute to this page and tell us about their favorite devotions.

It is nice to read about catholic devotion. In my church we follow the prayer to praise mother Mary. Easter is about to come and people have started the preparation. I will spread this devotion.

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
