This French, Sacred Heart detente/badge is hand embroidered on linen and measures 3.5" x 3", not including the ribbon at the top. ****Please note the ribbon is frayed and the back of the detente/badge has discoloration. The back of the detente/badge has, in French, "Stop, the heart of Jesus is [illegible]. May your kingdom come."
The saying is usually, "Stop, the heart of Jesus is with me!" These originated in France in the 10th century and provide protection through God's Divine Love.
More about the detente/badge from https://www.tfp.org/spreading-the-sacred-heart-badge/ :
In 1676, Our Lord Jesus Himself introduced the devotion to His flaming Heart to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, a French nun of the Visitation. He promised, “I will bless every house in which an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.” He also revealed His wish that people not only have a picture to venerate in their homes, but also carry a small picture with them.
When the Sacred Heart Badge was first presented to Blessed Pope Pius IX in 1870, he exclaimed, “this is an inspiration from Heaven. Yes, from Heaven,” and proceeded to grant the badge a blessing for all time so that subsequent badges need never be re-blessed by a priest. He then added, “and I want Satan to be unable to cause any harm to those who wear this badge.
And from https://www.stpaulyonkers.org/blog?month=202006&id=893441792&cat=2059276144&pg=&title=Detente%2A+Badge :
In the year 1720, during an outbreak of plague in France, our Lord Jesus Christ gave a promise to one Venerable Ana Magdalena Remuzat, saying that if the city would devote itself to His Sacred Heart and wear this sacramental, they would be spared from the disease. And by His divine promise and the faithful wearing of this shield, they were! Perfectly relevant for our time now when Corona-Virus is afflicting us. Let us devote ourselves to Jesus' Sacred Heart and the promise of resting in Him with confidence.
Is a sign of fidelity to the Heart of Jesus Christ.
Is a coat of arms that ennobles us.
Is a wall that defends us.
Is a magnet that draws the eyes and thanks of Jesus on us.
Is a lightning rod that removes from us the punishments of God.
Is a perennial prayer for us of Jesus, supplicating to the Father.
Is a Heart that beats next to ours.
Shows the heroism of the devotees of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Thank you for looking.
