Margaret Mary Alacoque Category: Heart Consecration of France
Letter of 1689-06-17 Letter of 1689-08-12 Letter of 1689-08-25

Letter of Margaret Mary Alacoque to Mother de Saumaise (1689-02-23)

Shortly before her death, in 1689, Marguerite Marie Alacoque wrote several letters to Mother de Saumaise, in which she described the request of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, addressed to the King of France Louis XIV, regarding the consecration of France to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The first Letter. February 23, 1689

The first letter was written on February 23, 1689, to Mother de Saumaise to thank her for what she had done toward promoting devotion to the Sacred Heart.

Ah, what happiness for you and for those that contribute to it; for they draw upon themselves the friendship and eternal benedictions of this amiable Heart, and a powerful protection on our country. It will not be less effectual to turn away the vengeance and severity of the just anger of God for so many crimes committed against it. But I hope the divine Heart will be come an inexhaustible source of mercy. It wishes only to establish its reign among us, in order to grant us more abundantly its precious graces of sanctification and salvation.

One thing that consoles me much is that I hope, in exchange for the bitterness this divine Heart suffered in the palaces of the great during the ignominies of His Passion, this devotion will in time magnificently flourish therein. Pursue, then, courageously what you have undertaken for His glory in the establishment of His reign. The Sacred Heart will reign in spite of Satan and all that may rise up to oppose it. But now is the time to work and suffer in silence, as He has done for our love.
