The Sacred Heart and the Sacred Heart Badge

I wish I saw this yesterday, but I was busy with some projects impacting this site, but Spera Rose, over at Speramus- We Hope has an excellent post on the history Sacred Heart devotion, but especially some useful information on the Sacred Heart Badge:

The Broken Heart of Jesus, the Merciful Saviour—-History of the Sacred Heart Badge

The Sacred Heart Badge was used as an early “award” for people in early recovery back in the 1930’s and 1940’s. It was the inspiration for the “chips” that AA members receive nowadays. (This isn’t from her post.)

You can obtain one for yourself by clicking on a link near the end of her post. 🙂

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)

"The Recovery Rosary: Reflections for Alcoholics and Addicts"

and "The Stations of the Cross for Alcoholics"
