Sacred Heart of Jesus battery candle
The Sacred Heart of Jesus battery candle is dedicated to the devotional practice of adoring Jesus through His loving heart.
The devotion to the Sacred Heart is one of the most widely practiced and well-known Roman Catholic devotions. Also, it takes Jesus Christ’s physical heart as the representation of his divine love for humanity.
This battery lit candle would make a beautiful addition to any home. Also it reminds us of the true heart of the home, the love of God. In addition, in Ireland, we believe that devotion to the Sacred Heart brought blessings on the home.
St Margaret Mary Alacoque of the Visitation Convent at Paray-le-Monial in Paris was a French Roman Catholic nun and mystic. She promoted devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in its modern form. The Lord taught her that His heart burned with love for us. Also He desired a Sacred Heart picture be placed in a prominent position in every home. He promised many blessings on the homes that would comply with His wishes.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart
The devotion to the Sacred heart was officially recognised 75 years after Alacoque’s death. Also, Margaret Mary was canonised by Pope Benedict XV in 1920. In his 1928 affirmed the Church’s position regarding the credibility of her visions of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, He spoke of Jesus as having “manifested Himself” to Saint Margaret Mary. Also, that He “promised her that all those who rendered this honour to His Heart would be endowed with an abundance of heavenly graces”.
The devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus spread quickly throughout the world. In Ireland there is a very strong tradition in our Catholic homes of venerating the Lord’s Sacred Heart picture. Consequently, the image is placed at the entrance to the house or in the main living room.
This devotion is predominantly used in the Roman Catholic Church. Also, among some high-church Anglicans and Lutherans. The Church deems it to be the long suffering love and compassion of the heart of Christ towards humanity. The origin of this devotion in its modern form is derived from a Roman Catholic nun from France. Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, said she learned the devotion from Jesus during a series of apparitions to her between 1673 and 1675. In the 19th century, Blessed Mary of the Divine Heart, a religious of the Good Shepherd, requested in the name of Christ that Pope Leo XIII consecrate the entire world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In hindsight, redecessors to the modern devotion arose unmistakably in the Middle Ages in various facets of Catholic mysticism.
