St. Margaret Mary Alacoque was a 17th century mystic. She was a Visitation nun. When she started having visions of Jesus, members of her order and theologians did not believe her. Eventually her visions were accepted.
In her visions, Jesus told her about his Sacred Heart and his love for all people. He promised graces to those who showed devotion to his Sacred Heart by receiving communion on nine consecutive First Fridays.
