This unique iconographic presentation of a beloved theme combines the classic pose of “Christ the Teacher” with devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Heart of Christ is burning with love for mankind, most vividly manifest in His suffering and sacrifice on the Cross.
Devotion to the loving heart of Christ first appeared in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, and has been credited to several saints, including Saints Bonaventure, Gertrude and Bernard. The devotion became popularized in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, especially through the Society of Jesus and the Visitation Order, and widespread devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus continues to this day.

Prayer to the Sacred Heart
May Your Heart dwell always in our hearts!
May Your Blood ever flow in the
veins of our souls!
Sun of our hearts, You give life by the
rays of Your goodness!
I will not go until Your Heart has
strengthened me, Lord Jesus!
May the Heart of Jesus be the
King of my heart!
Blessed be God. Amen.
– St. Francis de Sales
