By Cardinal Henry Edward Manning.

302 pages.

From the Preface:
The devotion to the Sacred Heart has two aspects: the one as the centre of all dogma; the other as the source of the deepest devotion. In the following pages I have intentionally confined myself to the dogmatic side of the devotion; and for the following reasons. I believe firmly that when divine truth is fully understood it generates devotion; that one cause of shallowness in the spiritual life is a superficial apprehension of the dogma of the Incarnation; and that one divine purpose in the institution and diffusion of the devotion of the Sacred Heart, in these last times, is to reawaken in the minds of men the consciousness of their personal relation to a Divine Master. He has foretold the dimness and the coldness of these latter days: ‘The Son of Man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on the earth?’ (Luke xvii,8) ‘Because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold.’ (Matthew xxiv, 12). In that day the disciples of the Sacred Heart at least will ‘know whom they have believed.” Then, if we are asked by Our Lord the same question that he thrice asked St. Peter, “Lovest those me?”, we will know the answer. This book is broken into ten chapters that have the following topics: The Divine Glory of the Sacred Heart, The Sacred Heart God’s Way of Love, Dogma the Source of Devotion, the Science of the Sacred Heart, The Last Will of the Sacred Heart, the Temporal Glory of the Sacred Heart, the Transforming Power of the Sacred Heart, the Sure Way of Likeness to the Sacred Heart, the Signs of the Sacred Heart, and The Eternal Glory of the Sacred Heart.
