“Learn of me, for I am meek and humble of heart.” —Matthew 11:29

Learn a way to take this line from the Gospels and conform yourself to it. This incredible classic of Catholic spirituality will show you the way to Heaven and real Christian holiness. The Imitation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus by Fr. Peter Arnoudt, SJ, is the guide that our souls need to become saints.

“My Child, if thou desirest to attain true felicity, render thy whole heart similar and comformable to My Heart.”

“In My heart thou shalt find peace and tranquility, which the world cannot give nor take away.” (page 27)

This book thoughtfully covers every way in which we can perfect ourselves through devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Not only that, but it warns us against every pitfall we face in the daunting task of attaining holiness. It includes important chapters on:

  • The dissatisfaction worldly goods provide
  • Salvation and the Sacred Heart
  • Perfection and imitation of the Sacred Heart
  • Cleansing of mortal and venial sins
  • Sanctifying grace
  • Jesus’s life and the Sacred Heart
  • Jesus’s suffering and the Sacred Heart
  • Unity with the Sacred Heart

Throughout this book, we are offered the greatest example of perfection—the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Fr. Arnoudt makes his knowledge accessible by staging the book as a conversation between Our Lord and ourselves as His disciples. The book then firmly and consolingly guides us along the path to perfection.

Not a book to be read at a few sittings, The Imitation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is one to be digested and allowed to become part of our daily lives. Its holy words enable us to conform ourselves to the Heart of Jesus and prepare us to enter the heavenly kingdom. Faithfully followed, this book will enable anyone to achieve sainthood.

    A Sacred Road to Heaven

    Posted by PATRICIA M. on Dec 31st 2022

    This is one of those few Medieval books written by holy mystics, whose sole, single-minded purpose is to guide soles to their final destination--heaven. This book contains tough advice for sincere, authentic followers of the Master, whose steps guide us to a not less tough end: the Cross.
