The Sacred Heart of Jesus is one of the most recognizable—but least understood—symbols of our Catholic faith. Many people are familiar with the image, but have yet to experience the depths of the “hidden” love story behind it. Christ’s promises to those who perform the Sacred Heart devotion may be the best-kept secret of our faith. In Healing Promises, readers will learn about the many ways to express devotion to the Sacred Heart, as well as the history of the Sacred Heart and its relevance for modern life.

Inspirational Advice and Prayers

The book has a history of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My deceased grandmother was very devoted to the Sacred Heart. She had a portrait of it hanging in her dining room all her life. Now it resides on the wall in our dining room.

My personal devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus began when I was praying for the conversion of a loved one to Catholicism. This person became a convert and remains faithful to the Catholic Church today.

Sometimes we may feel, if our everyday lives are troubled or too busy, that God might be too busy to hear us and respond. I learned that this is not the case. Trusting in the Lord is first. But remember He is always with us.

I truthfully have not, as yet, completed the entire book. However, I read the chapters which interested me at first and, of course, the prayer section in the back. It says in the Bible to pray unceasingly, so I say the prayers everyday and try to trust that I will be guided by His Sacred Heart to do the Will of God. After all, He is in charge; not me.

Essential

For several big reasons this book truly is essential. Anne presents the background of the devotion in a way that speaks to your heart. Her familiar and easy writing style makes it easy to understand and embrace. I kept thinking that I wanted this; she makes it so accessible and desirable
Secondly, we human beings are hungry for PROOF. I want to believe but our humanity has that skeptical voice that niggles at us with doubt. BELIEVE in the power and the promises of the Sacred Heart when you read this book. She has living examples, people's stories of how He, our loving Lord, has made good on the promises he gave to St Margaret Mary. I strongly recommend this book and no doubt after you've read it you'll want to share it with all your friends.
