Catholics throughout the world honor Jesus through the Sacred Heart devotion, which depicts his heart, burning with a flame, as his burning love for all of humanity. Many Catholic parishes are named after the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This devotion is based upon private revelations received by Sister Margaret Mary Alacoque, a French nun who lived in the 17th century.
This devotion has received full Church approval, and there is even a special feast day to the Sacred Heart, which is held on a Friday, 19 days after Pentecost.
Many Catholics like to keep a picture or a statue of the Sacred Heart in their homes. One of the promises attached to this devotion is that peace will reign in the families who honor the Sacred Heart.
