4. St. Gertrude the Great

 

Gertrude began receiving heavenly visions at age 25 while living in a Benedictine community in the 13th century. One day she saw both St. John the Evangelist and Jesus. She was invited to place her head on Jesus’ heart and spoke to John, asking him, “Well-beloved of the Lord, did these harmonious beatings which rejoice my soul also rejoice thine when thou didst repose during the Last Supper on the bosom of the Savior?” John replied, “Yes, I heard them, and my soul was penetrated with their sweetness even to its very center.” Gertrude asked, Why, then, hast thou spoken so little in thy Gospel of the loving secrets of the Heart of Jesus?” He responded, “My mission was to write of the Eternal Word … but the language of the blissful pulsations of the Sacred Heart is reserved for latter times, that the time-worn world, grown cold in the love of God, may be warmed up by hearing of such mysteries.”
