She received many supernatural gifts including the Mystical Marriage and the Stigmata. Teresa was chosen by Christ to make known His great desire that His Sacred Head be worshipped as the Seat of Divine Wisdom. This would be a remedy for a time of foolish intellectual pride and lapsing from the faith. It would be not only the completion of 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. Lady Cecil Kerr’s account of the Venerable Teresa Higginson remains the standard biography and is based on many of Teresa’s letters and other direct evidence of her remarkable life.
