Devotion to the Sacred Heart (D643)
"As the source of love, God desires to make himself known; and the knowledge which the human being has of God perfects all that the human mind can know of the meaning of life." (Pope St John Paul II)
Devotion to the Sacred Heart is one of the most popular Catholic devotions. When Jesus died on the cross, his side – his heart – was pierced, blood and water gushing from the wound. The last drops of his blood were shed for mankind. This sign of his infinite love is recalled in this devotion.
First published as Prayers to the Sacred Heart in 1926, the popularity of this booklet and the ways in which it helped Catholics and other Christians, earned a new edition in 1999. This collection of most famous and best-loved prayers are collected here in a handy format, now with an explanation of the devotion and the saints attached to it – St John Eudes, St Margaret Mary Alacoque and St Claude la Colombiere.
