Prayers To The Sacred Heart Of Jesus.

Devotion to Our Lord's Sacred Heart is one of the oldest devotions in the Church. It is a doctrinal devotion, grounded firmly in the great reality that is the Love of Our Lord God and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The devotion was well known in the Early Church and encouraged by the Fathers of the Church.

It continued to be well known down through the centuries; Saint Gertrude, Saint Francis de Sales, Saint Chantelle, are just a few of the saints associated with it that come to mind and, of course, the devotion came to great prominence in that late 17th and during the eighteenth century, following the work and mission of St Margaret Mary and Claude de la Colombiere. Sr/St Margaret Mary had reported receiving revelations of the Sacred Heart, and which was approved by the Church.

The Popes greatly encouraged devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and increasingly associated it with Christ The King.

Our Lord's Love is symbolized by His Sacred Heart. As Fr Francis Larkin writes:

"We worship the person of Jesus Christ, considered
in His Heart and all that His Heart symbolizes"
