Marguerite-Marie Alacoque, a French nun of the order of the Visitation in Paray-le-Monial, witnessed several visions of Christ. In June 1674, in the morning light which flooded the convent of the Visitation in Paray-le-Monial, Marguerite-Marie began her day with morning prayer with her sisters. Grateful for a peaceful night's sleep, good weather and her health restored through divine intervention a year before, she gave thanks to God for his countless blessings since childhood. However, she was careful not to disturb the tranquility of her companions with excess devotion.

After a modest breakfast, Marguerite-Marie attended to the usual stable chores, a chore that most of the sisters found thankless but which, for her, offered valuable alone time to pray aloud.

Once the animals were cared for and fed, she retired to her favorite place of prayer, under a grove of hazel trees , where she could commune with God in complete tranquility.

That morning, a familiar voice called his name. Turning around, she found herself face to face with Christ, whose torn and distressed appearance deeply upset her. Christ then revealed to him his fiery heart, a symbol of his infinite love for humanity, but also of the sadness caused by the ingratitude of men towards this love.

He then entrusted him with the mission of promoting devotion to the Sacred Heart in France, assuring him that his message would be heard by those who were ready to listen.

Although terrified by the prospect of sharing this privileged link with the divine, Marguerite-Marie accepted the mission with humility. With the support of her confessor, Saint Claude de la Colombière, she spread devotion to the Sacred Heart first in her monastery, then throughout the Catholic Church.

She died on October 16, 1690, reciting the names of Jesus and Mary, and was canonized by Pope Benedict XV in 1920.
