Subject/Title of Window: Sacred Heart and St. Margaret Mary Alocoque

Brief Description of Subject: St. Margaret Mary was a young French Visitation nun who lived in the 17th century. In 1674, she began receiving visions of Jesus as the Sacred Heart. The heart is an ancient symbol of the love of God. Her visions called for people to receive communion frequently (even daily), but especially on the First Fridays of every month, and asked the pop to institute a feast dedicated to the Sacred Heart. There are three streams of light coming from the Sacred Heart. The first is of mercy for sinners, the second of charity and help in the time of need, and the third is of love and light for those who are friends of God.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
