Devotion to the Sacred Heart of JESUS: (scanned; 1863 translation):,M1

A review about the book: "The Bishop of Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, discovered this tremendous treasure after it had disappeared for almost two centuries, thus fulfilling a prophecy made by St. Margaret Mary. She foretold that this inspired writing would be forgotten for a time, but then would come to light again. The author (Fr. Croiset) was the spiritual director of St. Margaret Mary and therefore was intimately familiar with every aspect of the revelations given by Our Lord to this famous saint; thus, the book is actually the "key" to understanding the importance and the centrality of the Sacred Heart devotion for our lives as true Catholics. This great work was actually commissioned by Our Lord Himself through St. Margaret Mary, and as Father Croiset neared completion of it, St. Margaret told him that Our Lord said it was so completely in accord with His wishes that it would never be necessary to make any change in it. Later she revealed that it was Our Lord Himself who had inspired him with the ideas in this book and that it was so pleasing to Him that "none other but Himself could have arranged everything so much to His wishes." This magnificent work is a revelation to all just why so few of us become great saints and why so few, despite going frequently to the Sacraments, fail really to grow in the life of grace and make great progress in the spiritual order. The best there is on this important devotion!"

"Even at the hour of death, incredulous, indifferent,
hardened souls have been converted by simply
showing them a picture of the Sacred Heart, which
sufficed to restore these sinners to the life of hope
and love, in a word, to touch the most hardened.
It would, indeed, be a great misfortune to any
apostolic man to neglect so powerful a means of
and in proof of this I will mention a
single fact which will need no comment. A religious
of the Company of Jesus had been requested
by the Blessed Margaret Mary to make a careful
engraving of the Sacred Heart. Being often hindered
by other occupations, there was much delay
in preparing this plate. ' This good father,'
writes the saint, 'is so much occupied by Mon-
signor d'Autun in the conversion of heretics, that
he has neither time nor leisure to give to the work
so ardently desired by the Heart of our Divine
Master. You cannot imagine, my much-loved
mother, how greatly this delay afflicts and pains
me. I must avow confidently to you my belief
that it is the cause of his converting so few infidels
in this town. I seem constantly to hear these
words : ' That if this good father had acquitted
himself at once of his promise to the Sacred Heart,
Jesus would have changed and converted the
hearts of these infidels, on account of the joy He
would have felt at seeing Himself honoured in the
picture He so much wishes for. As, however, he
prefers other work, even though to the glory of
God, to that of giving Him this satisfaction, He
will harden the hearts of these infidels, and the
labours of this mission will not be crowned with
much fruit.'
