The Sacred Heart statues are some of the most beautiful depictions of Our Lord Jesus Christ. In 1673, St. Margaret Mary of Alacoque received revelations of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. The French nun was asked to promote widespread practice of a Holy Hour of Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament and a special commemoration of the Sacred Heart at Masses on the first Friday of each month. Since the 17th century artists have portrayed Jesus showing His loving heart to the world. Some of the statues here are suitable for outdoor grottos.
