Margaret Mary Alacoque Category: Heart Consecration of France
Letter of 1689-02-23 Letter of 1689-06-17 Letter of 1689-08-25

Letter of Margaret Mary Alacoque to Mother de Saumaise (1689-08-12)

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 Anxious Letter. August 12, 1689

Mother de Saumaise was probably rather surprised by so serious a communication and one that tallied so little with what she knew of Margaret Mary s humility. She made no reply, -and our sweet and humble Marguerite became anxious at her silence. Were her letters lost? Would Mother de Saumaise, until then so courageous for the interests of the Heart of Jesus, hesitate before this new perspective?

Again she wrote to her, August 12, 1689:

I declare to you, my dear Mother, that your silence regarding the two long letters that I have had the honor to write you has given me a little pain. I know not to what to attribute it, except that perhaps I have set down my thoughts too freely and simply. I should perhaps have kept them concealed under an humble silence. You have only to tell me this, and I assure you that it will greatly gratify my inclination never to speak of these things, but to bury them in the secret of the Sacred Heart of my Divine Master. He is witness of the violence that I must do myself to speak of them. I should never have resolved to do so, had He not made known to me that it is for the interest of His glory; and for that I should cheerfully sacrifice millions of lives, if I had them, through my great desire to make Him known, loved, and adored. But perhaps you have not received my letters, and that would be still more afflicting to me.
