Don't miss the goosebump-raising story author Anne Costa relates, here
Anne Costa is a Catholic speaker and the author of numerous books. She is also communications officer of the John Paul II Center for Women, and for the Sacred Heart Apostolate, a job which helps to feed her own growing understanding of what the Sacred Heart of Jesus means for us. As June is the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart, we were very happy to have Costa give us a fast take on her latest book, Healing Promises: The Essential Guide to the Sacred Heart
Actually, I think the book was inspired by the Holy Spirit from start to finish because I had no intentions of writing a book about the Sacred Heart. I felt inadequate to do so! It was a total journey of trust that proved to be full of grace and adventure.
If you could give this book another title, what would it be?I would name it “His Heart and Yours….” because the whole devotion is really about the deep, intimate and abiding heart to heart connection that Jesus desires to have with each one of us.
When I first started writing this book, I was just learning about the Sacred Heart. I’m a post Vatican II Catholic and really didn’t know it. I have said that writing this book was like going to the school of His Heart and that every lesson was a lesson of Love! I think I learned most about how much each one of us is loved by Jesus and God, our Father.
If there is one person you want to reach with this book, who would that be?
