Teresa Helena Higginson

Teresa HigginsonHere is the complete text of Teresa's biography by Lady Cecil Kerr, first published in 1926:

Haupt Christi - The Sacred Head of ChristServant of God, The Spouse of the Crucified, 1944-1905,
by Cecil Kerr

Teresa Higginson's great mission was to promote devotion to the Sacred Head of Our Lord as the Seat of Divine Wisdom, not as a substitute for devotion to the Sacred Heart, but as its perfection. At first this sounds a little strange! But it only takes some reflection to recognise the extraordinary sense it makes. It is the head that controls and directs the heart; wisdom guides love.
