This blog seeks to gather information about the English Victorian schoolteacher mystic Teresa Helena Higginson, the people and places associated with her, devotion to the Sacred Head, as well as stories and favours received from her intercession. The plan is to build up a series of posts, in no definite order, which will give some background to both her and the Sacred Head devotion of which she was so passionately devoted over a period of time in an organic fashion. For those who want an introduction to her, please click on the links in the sidebar, where there are two excellent websites dedicated to her: Sacred Head and Teresa Higginson, as well as the online biography by Lady Cecil Kerr of 1926.
While this blog believes that her personal sanctity was beyond reproach, it is aware that her cause for beatification was declared by the Holy See in 1938 as 'non expedire' (not expedient), and desires in no way to reject the judgement and authority of the church on these matters.
