Vero Ritratto del Cuore della Beata Chiara di Montefalco

True Portrait of the Heart of Blessed Clare of Montefalco

Battista Piergilij de Bevagna
Letterpress with woodcut on paper

ca. 1800

GTA-000860 Box 1

Broadside telling the story of St. Clare of Montefalco:

“Jesus, carrying His Cross, appeared to Clare and said: “I have been searching for a long time, daughter, to find a firm and solid place on which to plant My Cross, and I have not found one more suitable than your heart. You must receive it and allow it to take root.”

When her heart was opened after her death, the Cross and other instruments of the Passion were found within, formed solidly in fibrous tissue. The crucifix was found to be about the size of a person's thumb. The corpus was white and clearly formed as if sculpted, except for the tiny wound of the lance, which was bright red. A white tissue covers the loins of the corpus.”

--from The Franciscan Book of Saints

Shown is the heart of a man who, after having repented, gives himself to sin again, and thus becomes an absolute slave to sin and Satan. Note the apprehensive angel and the fast-fleeing dove of the Holy Spirit.
