I designed the Badge of The Sacred Heart then printed it on fabric on my printer. After printing it, I placed it on white wool fabric, and embroidered the edges with red embroidery floss, I also outlined the badge with golden paint. This badge is a better version than the previous one. The Badge comes with a golden pin, and it measures approximately: 3.5" x 2.5".
From The Racolta: The Faithful who devoutly wear a badge of white wool, suspended from the neck after the manner of a small scapular, with a likeness of the Sacred Heart of Jesus embroidered theron or otherwise attached, and with the following, or similar words, printed upon it: Cease, the Heart of Jesus is with us, or even without any inscription at all, if they say : Our Father..., Hail Mary..., and Glory be..., may gain: An indulgence of 500 days, once a day (Pius IX).
The popularity of the Badge increased suddenly due to a very dramatic event in the city of Marseilles in France. In the year 1720, about thirty years after the death of St. Margaret Mary, Marseilles was ravaged by the plague. About one thousand persons died each day from the disease. Fear had reached near panic proportions. The Bishop of Marseilles asked the nuns of the city to make thousands of Sacred Heart Badges similar to the kind used by St. Margaret Mary and her friends. When the Badges were ready, the Bishop led a procession to the center of the city. There he consecrated Marseilles to the Sacred Heart, and everybody present put on a Sacred Heart Badge. From that moment not one new case of the plague was reported. In 1870 a Roman lady, wishing to know the opinion of the Holy Father Pius IX about the Badge of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, presented him with one. Touched by the sight of this emblem of salvation", the Pope approved the devotion forever and said: "This, Madam, this is an inspiration from Heaven. Yes, from Heaven." After a short moment of silence, he added: "I am going to bless this Heart and want all badges made after this model to receive the same blessing, so that in the future, it will not be necessary for the blessing to be renewed by a priest. And I want Satan to be unable to cause any harm to those who wear this Badge, symbol of the adorable Heart of Jesus." This Badge is handmade and the back is real white wool. It is a square and measures 2.3". The Badge is part of my mission to spread the devotion of The Most Sacred Heart.
