Discover the life of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, who spread devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus throughout the world!

Margaret Mary Alacoque knew in her heart that she wanted to serve Jesus, but little did she know that Jesus had a special message for her about his Sacred Heart.

As a child, Margaret experienced a miraculous healing after praying to the Blessed Mother, but she had to struggle to convince her own mother to allow her leave home and become a religious sister. Later, as Sister Margaret Mary of the Order of the Visitation, she struggled once again to convince those around her that Jesus was sending her messages to begin a devotion to his Sacred Heart. Jesus revealed twelve promises to Saint Margaret Mary when he spoke to her.

This 37th volume in the Encounter the Saints series familiarizes children ages 8 to 10 with Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, who received the message of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and helped to spread it throughout the world!

SERIES DESCRIPTION: The Encounter the Saints series offers intermediate readers relatable portrayals of the saints. Each story, in a handy format, vividly recreates the saint's place of origin, family life, and corresponding historical events.
