The Power of Images in Devotion Sacred Heart of Jesus
“Into the Deep” will be in person and live streamed at St. Augustine’s on Friday, June 24, 2022 at 7 PM
Please come with us "into the deep" and learn how devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus owes its power and popularity to images. That devotion derives from the experiences of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, to whom the Lord revealed his Sacred Heart in a series of mystical apparitions. As a nun in the Visitation Order (founded by St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal), she knew the central role that the imagination plays in Salesian spirituality. In this webinar, we'll take a little tour through the evolution of that iconography to see how this spiritual tradition and these sacred images engender ideas, express meaning, excite passions, and invite reflections on the graces given to us in the Heart of Jesus.
