Today and tomorrow are going to be a bit tricky for me as they are very much part of the RC tradition, but not so much the Lutheran tradition.  Again, I had to do a bit of digging to understand what a Catholic thinks/feels when he hears “Sacred Heart of Jesus.”  Among other things, I found the following litany.  So I thought I would supplement my feeble attempt to photograph an icon of the theme with the litany.
