“I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is cover-to-cover a treasure trove of meditations on the Sacred Heart with a nice collection of prayers in the appendix for morning, evening, Mass, confession, etc. This book has not left my side since I received it and I find myself returning to it two to three times a day.” — Reader
“The Imitation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus by Rev. Arnoudt is a book of books that should be read and meditated on by all Catholics, as well as those who are confused and/or are indifferent to the idea of God. The book is similar, but more personalized, than The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a’ Kempis.” — Reader, Daniel G
