Margaret Mary Alacoque Heart. Personalities Leo XIII, Pope

Mary of the Divine Heart (1863—1899)

Blessed Mary of the Divine Heart born Maria Droste zu Vischering. She was a German Roman Catholic nun known for influencing Pope Leo XIII's consecration of the world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Born: 8 September 1863; Münster, Germany
Died:  8 June 1899 (aged 35); Porto, Portugal

By birth, Countess Droste of Vishiring. She spent her childhood in Darfeld Castle, near Münster. At the age of 19, she took a vow of virginity, continuing to live at home, but already in accordance with the spirituality of the order, i.e. became a tertiary — a laywoman of the third branch of the order.

At the age of 25, she entered the order of the "Sisters of the Good Shepherd" in Münster, which follows the Rule of St. Augustine. In addition to the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, the Sisters of the Good Shepherd take the fourth vow of striving for the salvation of souls, especially the souls of women and maidens: “the labor for the conversion of fallen women and girls needing refuge from the temptation of the world”. After passing the obedience, Mary was entrusted with the catechesis of novices, then she was appointed assistant abbess of the monastery of the order in Lisbon, and in 1894 she became abbess in Porto (Portugal).

On June 10, 1898, the Mother Superior of the Convent of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd informed Pope Leo XIII that the nun Mary was conveying to the Pope the demand of Jesus Christ to consecrate the whole world to His Sacred Heart. Leo XIII ignored this message. On January 6, 1899, Mary wrote a second letter to the Pope, in which she asked, in addition to the consecration of the world, to introduce in the Church the custom of consecrating the first Friday of the month to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ. In this letter, Sister Mary informed the Pope that he would be cured of the illness he was suffering from at the time.

On June 11, 1899, Leo XIII consecrated all mankind to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Sister Maria had died a few days before, on June 8, 1899.
