The following Text is from Wikipedia - the free encyclopædia,
unless stated otherwise.

The Sacred Heart, also known as The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus (Latin: Sacratissimum Cor Iesu), is one of the most-widely-practised and well-known Catholic devotions, wherein The Heart of Jesus is viewed as a symbol of "God's boundless and passionate love for mankind".[1]

This devotion to Christ is predominantly used in The Catholic Church, followed by High-Church AnglicansLutherans and some Western Rite Orthodox. In The Latin Church, the Liturgical Solemnity of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is Celebrated on The Third Friday After Pentecost.[2] The Twelve promises of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus are also extremely popular.

The devotion is especially concerned with what The Catholic Church deems to be the long-suffering love and compassion of The Heart of Christ towards humanity.

The popularisation of this devotion in its modern form is derived from a Roman Catholic Nun from FranceMargaret Mary Alacoque, who said she learned the devotion from Jesus during a series of apparitions to her between 1673 and 1675,[3] and, later, in the 19th-Century, from the mystical revelations of another Catholic Nun in PortugalMary of The Divine Heart, a Religious Sister of The Congregation of The Good Shepherd, who requested in the name of Christ that Pope Leo XIII Consecrate the entire World to The Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Predecessors to the modern devotion arose unmistakably in The Middle Ages in various facets of Catholic Mysticism, particularly with Saint Gertrude the Great.[4]
