SACRED HEART OF JESUS
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
