Sacred Heart at Paray-le-Moniale: Saint Margaret Mary to the rescue

In a previous post I explained that plans for our new altar include a mosaic of the Sacred Heart with the Immaculate Heart, and that a priest friend said that our Lord forbade such a depiction of His Sacred Heart apart from the body of His human nature. But then…

  • Someone well studied with the revelations to Saint Margaret Mary dropped a comment that they’ve never seen such an admonition in any of the literature.
  • Someone with a life dedicated to the Sacred Heart sent in this picture of the tomb of St Margaret Mary Alacoque in Paray-le-Moniale, above which is a mosaic of the Sacred Heart is depicted without the body of the human nature of the Divine Person.

I would add that the practical, that is, artistic “reception” of the Sacred Heart depicted also apart from the body of the human nature of Jesus is ubiquitous, that is, everywhere to be seen.

I’m sure you’re seen the “Badge” as it’s called:

    Devotiion to the Sacred Heart is the Precursor to Divine Mercy. Christ gave the message first to Saint Margaret Mary, and then, because His flock has zero memory to Saint Faustina. Thank you Lord for this beautiful devotionl. Thank you, Saint Margaret Mary and Saint Faustina for faithfully delivering the message.
