Excerpt from The Apostleship of Suffering
The first was Father Henry Ramiere, who was to make the Apostleship the basis of a universal League of Christian hearts with the Heart of Jesus praying and pleading for the Church and the salva tion of souls. He was to give it a final organization, with lay Promoiers keeping alive and propagating ever more and more its T/zree Degrees of Christian devotion; and he was to furnish it, for continued and safe direction, with a chain of official bulletins reaching round the world in the various but united Messengers of tire Sacred Heart. At The second was Father Drevon, who gave the first definite impulse to the great pilgrimages to Paray - the sanctuary of all devotion to the Sacred Heart. His life-work, too, was to be united with the many spiritual movements of our day which have taken a lasting form and life in the Holy League. The Communion ofpeparaz'z'on, which he had founded in the Church, had already been recognized as the T/n'ra' Degree of the A pestlesnz'p of Prayer when, at his death and in accordance with his wish, the Head of the Church finally associated its Direction with the General Direction of the League of the Sacred Heart.
