Summary: This is a small collection of prayers of repentance and preparation, with introductions to each prayer to the Corazón de Jesus.
Historical Notes: The religious rituals of the Corazón de Jesus from France were widely adopted after their arrival in 1867. In Colombia the municipalities and cities adopted the Catholic symbol as their guardian in 1891. This process of national commitment to the Corazón de Jesus devotion was not free from friction between the Liberal and the Conservative parties who constantly debated the divine origin of the authority. The Liberals were historically opposed to the intrusions of the Catholic Church in the politics of the nation. Henríques de Hernández, Cecilia 2010 El Sagrado Corazón en la Historia de Colombia.
