On February 4, 1890, Sister Josefa Menéndez was born into a devoutly Catholic household in Madrid, Spain. She was born with a gift for prayer and was drawn to the holy life as a kid, but she first had to support her impoverished family as a dressmaker. Her determination to entirely surrender herself to God remained unwavering in the face of adversity. She left Spain in 1920 to join the Society of the Sacred Heart's monastery in France, where she became a Coadjutrix Sister. During her time in the convent, she experienced multiple private insights that elevated her to the ranks of visionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. On December 29, 1923, she died a holy death.
The Way of Divine Love is the definitive biography of Sister Menéndez and the angelic revelations she received. It is one of the most comprehensive chronicles of a single person's exceptional mystical experiences in Church history. Despite many challenges in her daily life, she dutifully chronicled everything she received from heaven, including her amazingly detailed visions of Christ's Passion.
Josefa's life is grace-giving and profoundly affecting in every way. Her works and her life confirm each other as proof that everything that happened to her was divinely inspired. Even the most remarkable events have a purpose and value. There are no superfluous details, no discoveries that do not bring to light and compel some theological truth, giving us more insight into the Heart of Our Lord, His love, the value of souls, the happiness of paradise, and the irreparable loss of the damned.
