Like our spiritual brothers and sisters in Christ, it is of the utmost importance to us to try to honor Jesus in some way every day of our lives. We firmly believe that He is both God and man and that He willingly bore our sins and our infirmities on the cross for our salvation. Because of His unfailing, unconditional love that saves us, we want to express our gratitude to Him, daily, through engaging in contemplative prayer and by putting our faith into action by purely loving others like Jesus taught us to do.
Sometimes, we want to honor Jesus in a special way. It could be during a liturgical season, such as Advent or Lent. Or it could be during a particularly significant season in our lives. Whether we are struggling with a difficult situation or overjoyed because of the happy blessings in our lives, we might find ourselves longing to be closer to Jesus and wanting to experience that closeness by immersing ourselves in worship and praise.
For such times and such seasons, we might want to consider participating in a special devotion. Although everyone is welcome to participate in all devotions, there are some devotions that seem especially suited for people who like to express their love and gratitude to Jesus in a specific way. For instance, while there are, of course, Eucharistic devotions, there are also Marian devotions. Here are six Catholic devotions that can enrich our faith and help us to honor Jesus in a special way.
