Mystical devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus has origin in the Passion Account of the Gospel of St. John. The crucified Christ's human heart after His sacrifice (death) on the cross is pierced by a Roman soldiers lance and "blood and water" flow out- two actual symbols of life, now raised to the level of the supernatural in the sacramental life of the Mystical Body, the Church to give Eternal Life, through the Sacred Humanity and Most Holy Wounds of Jesus, Our Lord and Saviour.  There are precursors of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the history of the Church especially in Medieval Times (The Five Wounds of Christ). At the end of almost 150 years of suiscidal and murderous "religious war" destroying Christendom between baptised Christians, Catholic and Protestant, which transformed religion into politics, nationalism, and ideology, St. Mary Margaret Alacoque, a French Nun, gave definitive form through personal revelations from Christ to universal devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Church with her Jesuit confessor, St. Claude Columbiere.
