One of the souls who showed the most devotion to the Heart of Jesus is certainly St. Teresa of Avila, who was moved as soon as she saw an image that reminded her of the blood or wounds of the Savior. It was there that this great Saint learned to recognize the value of her soul and the love that Jesus had for her. She herself tells the following. “One day I entered an oratory and saw an image of Jesus Christ, covered with wounds! I immediately felt a deep compassion for Him, because everything He suffered for us was represented in the most authentic way! The pain I felt was so great that it seemed as if my heart was being broken, and having thrown myself at His feet I shed a great abundance of tears, begging Him to grant me the grace not to offend Him any more.
