teresahigginson.wordpress.comHIGGINSON, Teresa (1844-1905) teacher, mystic, promoter of devotion to the Sacred Head of Christ.

Few people would now remember the name, Teresa Higginson, and fewer still would know anything about her, but she is an outstandingly interesting example of pre-Vatican Catholic piety. Teresa was a young school teacher believed by many to be a saint, thought by others to be medically and psychologically unsound. She originated, and attempted to spread, devotion to “The Sacred Head as the Seat of Divine Wisdom”. There was agitation for, and resistance to, her canonization in the twenties and thirties.
