"My priest is My other self; I love him, but he must be holy."
Mother Louise Margaret Claret de la Touche (1868–1915), a Visitation sister, was commissioned first by Our Lord, then by her religious superiors to write The Sacred Heart and the Priesthood based on her lifetime of conversations with the Divine Master. Its purpose is to strengthen the souls of priests in the love of their sublime vocation, to unite them more than ever to Jesus Christ, the eternal Priest, and to give the faithful a greater confidence in and more religious and filial respect for the orders of the sacred hierarchy. (p. xxxii)
The Holy See has declared Mother Louise Margaret's writings to be in conformity with the teachings of the Church and has sanctioned the organization of priests she had drawn up under the name of the Priests' Universal Union of the Friends of the Sacred Heart. A gift for seminarians, priests, and anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of this vocation, The Sacred Heart and the Priesthood is a profound exploration of Holy Orders made between a mystic of the Church and Our Lord Himself.
