Saint Margaret Mary and the Promises of the Sacred Heart tells the amazing story of the holy French nun, from her painful childhood (when she spent nearly four bed-ridden years battling rheumatic fever) to her glorious visions of the Sacred Heart as a humble nun. Intended for young readers age 10 and up, the story of Saint Margaret Mary presents a shining example for children, who will see this great saint's unceasing devotion to the holy Eucharist and Our Lady. These devotions led her to the convent where she continued to experience Christ, often in fantastic ways. Known now as the Apostle of the Sacred Heart, Saint Margaret Mary experienced many visions of Christ and His Sacred Heart. These visions not only deepened her faith but were the driving force behind the modern devotion to the Sacred Heart. Lovingly written by Mary Fabyan Windeatt and accompanied by vintage pen and ink illustrations, Saint Margaret Mary is sure to delight and to educate. An essential book for any young Catholic's library.
