Download The Love of the Sacred Heart Part 1
Before the revelations of Divine Mercy to St. Faustina, or of the Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque there were the revelations of the Sacred Heart to St. Mechtilde (1241-1298) a Benedectine nun and friend of St. Gertrude the Great. Lovers of the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus will find many similarities between these and St. Margaret Mary’s revelations though they lived several centuries apart, though there is no evidence that she was familiar with St. Mechtilde’s writings. These divine revelations also greatly influenced the Poet Dante when he wrote his Divine Comedy and hopefully will be a source of edification and inspiration to you dear listener.
All of these readings are from The Love of the Sacred Heart. Illustrated by St. Mechtilde published in 1922 and are in the public domain.
