......GO OUT QUICKLY INTO THE STREETS AND LANES OF THE CITY, AND BRING IN HITHER THE POOR, ANDTHE FEEBLE, AND THE BLIND AND THE LAME.
......GO OUT INTO THE HIGHWAYS AND HEDGES, AND COMPEL THEM TO COME IN, THAT MY HOUSE MAY BE FILLED.
(LUKE 14: 21-23)
Wherever I happen to be, I bring souls to Jesus, then compel them in His Most Sacred Heart, for Him to envelop their hearts with His Love, to draw their hearts back to Him, and by the Merits of His Most Sacred Heart, save them and bring them to
Our Lord revealed to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque "His wish for her to order a picture of the image of His Sacred Heart for people specifically to venerate and have in their homes and also small pictures to carry with them." She wrote this to her Superior, Mother Saumaise, on March 2, 1686. Thus was born the devotion of wearing the little Badges. Saint Margaret Mary always kept a Sacred Heart badge with her and inspired her novices to do the same.
In 1870 a Roman lady, wishing to know the opinion of the Holy Father Pius IX about the Badge of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, presented him with one. Touched by the sight of this emblem of salvation", the Pope approved the devotion forever and said: "This, Madam, this is an inspiration from Heaven. Yes, from Heaven." After a short moment of silence, he added: "I am going to bless this Heart and want all badges made after this model to receive the same blessing, so that in the future, it will not be necessary for the blessing to be renewed by a priest. And I want Satan to be unable to cause any harm to those who wear this Badge, symbol of the adorable Heart of Jesus."
