The cult of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was one of the most popular devotion among Catholics between 1850 and 1950. The devotion set off on its unrivalling career at the end of the 17th century encouraged by a French nun's, Margaret Alacoque's, visions and promises she got from Jesus. The cult gained its real popularity in the middle of the 19,h century when local organisations were formed in almost every parish. The Confraternity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was most efficient to propagate the cult with a widespread press activity. To popularise the cult of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1861 a newsletter was published in France, called the Messenger of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This developed into a group of publications: before WW II Messengers were published on more than 60 languages. The Messenger, the most efficient propagator of the cult in Hungary was active between 1867 and 1944. The final column in every issue was the so-called 'thanksgiving texts'. Here the believers gave thank publicly for a grace which happened to them and they assigned to the help of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. On the basis of their quantity the author considers these letter fragments as suitable for investigation. Hereby he has chosen the thanksgiving texts of the years 1889, 1909 and 1925 for deeper analysis. In the course of the analysis the content analysis methodology developed by Klaus Krippendorf was used. In this paper the author would like to explore the systems of the texts, the trends and analyse the communication created by these texts.
