Teresa Higginson (1844-1905) was a saintly Catholic schoolteacher. She was born in North Wales, lived most
of her life in North West England and Scotland and died in Devon. It seems she received many supernatural gifts
from God, such as healing, prophecy, bilocation and the stigmata.
It is claimed that Teresa was chosen by Christ to make known the devotion to his Sacred
Head as the Seat of Divine Wisdom. This would be a remedy for a time of extraordinary intellectual pride and falling-away
from faith. It would not only be the completion of the devotion to the Sacred Heart, but the crowning of all devotions.
In fact it was
prophesied to be the one great means for the conversion of England.
