Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Issoudun

Religious congregation founded at Issoudun, archdiocese of Bourges, France, in 1854, by Jules Chevalier. It is composed of priests and lay brothers, with the object of promoting the knowledge and practise of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, as embodied in the revelations of Our Lord to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, and of offering personal reparation to the Divine Heart. The efforts of these missionaries are expended chiefly in foreign mission fields especially in the South Sea Islands, New Pomerania, South Australia, Philippine Islands, and other islands of the South Pacific. They have also founded houses in England, Canada, and the United States. After the separation of Church and State in France, the mother-house was transferred from Issoudun to Rome. See also,
