Wow! So very beautiful and just what I needed.
Full text of Ancient Devotions to the Sacred Heart available to read:
From page 76:
Ascend often the tree of the Cross; dwell under its shadow and gather its saving fruits.
The tree of the Cross is always loaded.
It comforts and satisfies the soul that plucks its fruits, and one can never take all that it bears.
"I am come to cast fire on the earth." (St. Luke 12:49)
This fire is the ardent flame of the Divine love hidden in the Heart of Jesus.
He who approaches it is all kindled with fervor; he who remains at a distance is indifferent, dry and frozen.
Happy the soul that is inflamed with the fire of the sorrowful Passion of the Redeemer!
This prayer card image especially striking to me, as I find 3-color scheme powerful in art.
Found this holy card just now.
It seems a reply to driving through a large pecan grove this morning, and my thinking (beautiful sunny morning with a slight breeze ruffling the zillions of pecan leaves) how nice it'd be to build a shrine to Our Lady of the Pecan Grove. And just now I come across the Son in a similar setting.
There's your sign!

From page 189:
How late have I loved Thee, O most ancient Beauty!
How often have I grieved Thee, Heart of Jesus, Which
hast so much loved me!
When I loved Thee not, what did I love but nothing -
vanity, corruption, and impurity? I can no longer
tolerate such great disorder.
Take from me then this wretched heart which has
forsaken Thee to attach itself to other things, and
give me a new heart, wholly in subjection to Thee,
that Thou mayest be in truth the God of my Heart,
as I desire to be the child of Thy Heart.
Dom Innocent le Massson
Love this picture of the Sacred Heart with rays coming out of our Lord's Blessed hands.
I always though Divine Mercy adds to the Sacred Heart devotion as it shows the blood and water gushing forth from His Sacred Heart -- Love and Mercy.
A bit "off topic," but will include this here - for obvious reasons. Have found this just now. So adorable.
*-My wonderful Lord
my wonderful Lord
by angels and seraphs
in Heaven adored
I bow at Thy shrine
my Savior Divine
(hymn author - Haldor Lillenas)
Tell me the story of Jesus
write on my heart every word
Tell me the story most precious
sweetest that ever was heard
Tell how the angels in chorus
sang as they welcomed His birth
