Sacred Heart Badge
In response to Our Lord's promise to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, (pronounced AL'- a-coke) "I will bless every place where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored," clever French Catholics soon devised a sacramental so they could carry an image of our Lord's Heart with them always ... the Sacred Heart Badge.
Our badges are made of red felt and encased in durable plastic to last many years. One side has a picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, surrounded by the prayer, "Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, make our hearts like Thine." On the reverse, is an image of the Heart alone, surrounded by thornes, flaming with love for us, and surmounted by a cross. The inscription reads, "Heart of Jesus, source of all consolation."
Picture shows front and back of the Sacred Heart Badge.
The Sacred Heart Promises:
- I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
- I will give peace in their homes.
- I will console them in all their afflictions.
- I will be their secure refuge in life, and especially in death.
- I will abundantly bless all their undertakings.
- Sinners shall find in My Heart the source of an infinite ocean of mercy.
- Tepid souls shall become fervent.
- Fervent souls shall rise quickly and mount to high perfection.
- I will bless those places wherein the image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and venerated.
- I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.
- Persons who propagate this devotion shall have their names eternally written in my Heart.
- 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.
