Imitation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
This Book, containing four separate parts, is one of those works which possess a merit of its own. It is a Book of rare merit, and worthy of keeping company with the immortal “Following of Christ,” of the venerable a Kempis. This work it resembles in teaching the highest practical truths, but it differs from the same, in that it is more regular in plan; more complete, actual, definite.
The aim of the First Book is, to teach you how to free the heart, first, from the stains of sin, afterwards from the love of a corrupt world, and lastly, from the inordinate affection for self.
The object of the Second Book is, to teach us - after we have become disengaged from our evil and inordinate affections, how we should exert ourselves, that, by the practice of virtue, we may be enabled to make our election sure.
Book Three contains admonitions useful to imitate the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, in His life of suffering.
Book Four contains admonitions helpful toward uniting ones self with the Heart of Jesus in bliss.
