4 Saints Who Saw the Sacred Heart of Jesus & the Messages They Received

4 Saints Who Saw the Sacred Heart of Jesus & the Messages They Received

These saints were each graced with a visual encounter with the Heart of Jesus.

These visions have been recognized by the Church as authentic. While the faithful are not obliged to believe in them (as is true of any personal revelation), the Church finds merit in these visions and the devotions surrounding them because they reflect “the entire mystery of Christ, the totality of his being, and his person considered in its most intimate essential: Son of God, uncreated wisdom; infinite charity, principal of salvation and sanctification of mankind. The ‘Sacred Heart’ is Christ, the Word Incarnate, Savior, intrinsically containing, in the Spirit, an infinite divine-human love for the Father and for his brothers.”

Here is a brief list of four visionaries along with the messages they received.

1. St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

In 1673, a French Visitandine (Visitation) nun named Margaret Mary Alacoque had visions of Jesus, wherein he asked the Church to honor his Most Sacred Heart. Among the promises he communicated, Jesus said to St. Margaret Mary, “In the excess of the mercy of my heart, I promise you that my all powerful love will grant to all those who will receive communion on the First Fridays, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance: they will not die in my displeasure, nor without receiving the sacraments; and my heart will be their secure refuge in that last hour.”

2. St. Lutgardis of Aywières

Born in the 12th century, Lutgardis joined a Benedictine monastery and started to receive visions of Jesus and his pierced heart. In one of her visions she experienced an “exchange of hearts,” where Jesus asked her: “What, then, do you want?” She said, “I want Thy Heart.” In response, Jesus said, “You want My Heart? Well, I too want your heart.” Lutgardis then proclaimed: “Take it, dear Lord. But take it in such a way that the love of Your Heart may be so mingled and united with my own heart that I may possess my heart in Thee, and that it may always remain there secure in Your protection.”

3. St. Mechtilde of Hackeborn

In the 13th century, St. Mechtilde, a Benedictine nun in Germany, received many visions of Jesus during her life. A book was written about her experiences and Jesus appeared to her one day, holding this book on his Heart with his right hand. He kissed it, and said to her, “All that is found written in this book has flowed from My divine Heart, and will return to it.” Jesus also said to her, “In the morning let your first act be to greet my Heart and to offer me your own. Whoever breathes a sigh toward me, draws me to himself.”

4. St. Gertrude the Great

Gertrude began receiving heavenly visions at age 25 while living in a Benedictine community in the 13th century. One day she saw both St. John the Evangelist and Jesus. She was invited to place her head on Jesus’ heart and spoke to John, asking him, “Well-beloved of the Lord, did these harmonious beatings which rejoice my soul also rejoice thine when thou didst repose during the Last Supper on the bosom of the Savior?” John replied, “Yes, I heard them, and my soul was penetrated with their sweetness even to its very center.” Gertrude asked, Why, then, hast thou spoken so little in thy Gospel of the loving secrets of the Heart of Jesus?” He responded, “My mission was to write of the Eternal Word … but the language of the blissful pulsations of the Sacred Heart is reserved for latter times, that the time-worn world, grown cold in the love of God, may be warmed up by hearing of such mysteries.”

Virgin Mary Reveals To A Mystic What Happens To Aborted Babies – “Their Parents Will Have To Account For Their Sin…”

Virgin Mary Reveals To A Mystic What Happens To Aborted Babies – “Their Parents Will Have To Account For Their Sin…”

 

Mirjana: I wouldn’t like to judge anyone; never. Why a woman had an abortion and what life experience she was going through at that time, only she knows. Generally, I don’t like judgments. I don’t like judging anyone, because I don’t know what goes through the mind of a person and why he has done something. When I was in Sarajevo and went to the high school that I talked to you about, which gathered all those who had been expelled from other schools, many girls had an abortion very easily. Then they came to school in the afternoon and spoke, and were at the concert which was held in the evening. To me it was unthinkable! I was very sad about that situation. I cannot say that I was totally shocked, but to a certain extent I was, because I couldn’t understand that a woman could kill an innocent child within herself, speak calmly and then go to a concert in the evening. 

Once I plucked up my courage and, during an apparition, I asked Our Lady why these children could not go to Heaven; why they had to suffer and be killed if they were innocent. They hadn’t chosen it. I said all sorts of things. Then Our Lady said to me maternally and seriously: “No, these children are with me. There is no limbo. They are with me”. Their parents will have to account for their sin of abortion.” That’s what Our Lady told me. 

Here in Medjugorje, I had the opportunity to meet women who had an abortion and the majority of them  I’d say 95 percent of them  repented. They regretted what they did. It is a sincere regret which really comes from their heart. These women are broken. I always recommend that they be honest in their confession, go to a priest, kneel down before God and express their regret. I think that afterwards they all feel better or at least that is what they have told me.

 

Certain women say it’s their body, so they have a right to decide whatever they want about it.

 

Mirjana: I don’t agree with that. Of course I wouldn’t say I’m right. This is just how I see, but I disagree. If another life grows in my body, I can not say that that’s my body and that I have a right to decide whatever I want about it. It’s someone else’s life. God created a new man or a new woman. You cannot decide that the child will not live. God created it in your body, but not for you to represent God and decide whether it will live or not.

 

Do you think God forgives such a sin?

Mirjana: I cannot say whether or not God will forgive it; only God knows. However, we know that Jesus said that what the priest forgives us, will be forgiven. I believe in what He says. Seeing God as a Father, as our Heavenly Father, if you present yourself before Him kneeling and crying from your heart for the sin that you have committed and the remorse you feel, I don’t think that a priest will turn his back on you. I don’t think so.

“STOP Abortion”: A Plea From An Unborn Child

“STOP Abortion”: A Plea From An Unborn Child

Definition Of Abortion

Webster’s dictionary defines abortion as the expulsion of the human fetus prematurely. A medical dictionary defines it similarly, but lists some twenty-two classifications or types of abortions; for example, accidental, criminal, habitual, induced, infectious, natural, and therapeutic. Obviously, the legislation in question does not deal with the usual accidental or natural cause of an abortion or “miscarriage,” such as intrauterine infection, incompetent cervix, trauma, and the like. 

Rather,the question now before the people and their legislators is whether or not there should be restrictions on what Webster calls aborticide; that is, the act of destroying a fetus in the womb, either by direct use of instruments or by the use of a chemical or “medication” that kills the fetus and/or causes it to be expelled.
