Embossed orange boards worn at the corners. 12pp, wide margined. An unusual case: Patrizi convened a council to consider the case of Marguerite Marie Alacoque, but before a conclusion on her blessedness (the second step towards sainthood - she had been declared venerable by Pope Leo XII in 1824) was reached, he died. A few months later, Pope Pius took up the cause and she was declared blessed. This is the original case as set forward by Patrizi. Marguerite Marie Alacoque was sainted in 1920. She was widely influential in the veneration of the Sacred Heart and the Holy Hour. Her devotional writings were published posthumously as La Devotion au Sacré-Coeur de Jesus. She is mentioned in James Joyce's Dubliners (1914) indicating that her popularity preceded her full canonization. Size: Quarto (4to). Text is clean and unmarked. Quantity Available: 1.
