ANCIENT DEVOTIONS
TO THE
SACRED HEART OF JESUS

by
Carthusian Monks
of the 14–17th centuries

Newly revised & enlarged

Foreword by Cardinal Robert Sarah


The Psalmist wrote: “Be still and know that I am God” (Ps 46:10).

“Coming from the deep silence and asceticism of mediæval Carthusian monasteries, this book’s prayers and meditations have a unique ardour that reflects the genuine spirituality of their authors. The piety of these monks, strongly grounded in Sacred Scripture and the early Fathers of the Church, cannot fail to impress and to inspire. Like that of Jesus, Carthusian prayer, but also any authentic prayer, is anchored in interiority, solitude and silence. Jesus goes off to a deserted place, under the
sole gaze of the Father. And in this solitude and this silence, He formed His disciples”.  
Robert Cardinal Sarah
