Peace-and-quiet time of personal prayer.


The practice of an hour of quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament has come down to us from St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690). A French nun, it was she who received visions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.


A  Popular  Image

Statues and pictures depicting the Sacred Heart of Jesus are widespread in Ireland, found in ver many Catholic churches and in older family homes. This popularity arose from the consecration of Ireland to the Sacred Heart by the Irish Bishops in 1873.


Shortly after this date, Canon Maurice Power set about building Emly parish church. On 3rd November 1886 he purchased a good quality Sacred Heart statue and erected it over the right-hand side-altar that is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Above it is placed a stained glass window that depicts Jesus revealing his Heart of Love to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque.


Local artist Michael Burke recently refurbished the statue that is now back in its original station.
