Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0895552957, Paperback)

Translated by the Sisters of the Visitation, this is one of the Church's most famous classics. Written under obedience to her superiors, St. Margaret reveals the intimate spiritual life of a magnificent saint to whom Our Lord gave the famous revelations regarding the love of His Sacred Heart. Our Lord guided her from her earliest childhood and indicated to her how He cannot tolerate the slightest fault. He revealed to her the absolute sanctity of His love, and urged her not to resist His Holy Will in any way. She writes how God gave her a supernatural desire for great and continual suffering and love of the Cross. She tells us of angels appearing to her and how on another occasion she was given a mystical crown of thorns which caused her intense pain for the rest of her life. In sum, this is a powerful antidote to our natural tendency to reduce, in our own thinking, the Divine Majesty to strictly human dimensions. A spiritual jewel!
