St. Margaret Mary Alacoque......October 13



Chosen by God
to reveal to the Christian World
the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

"What a weakness it is to love Jesus Christ
only when He caresses us,
and to be cold immediately once He afflicts us.
This is not true love.
Those who love thus, love themselves too much to love God with all their heart."

Thanks to Jean for the quote.



Translation of French words.

At the top: The Revelation of the Sacred Heart
At the bottom: The apparition of Our Lord to the blessed Margaret Mary [Alacoque], religious sister of the Order of the Visitation of St. Mary [the BVM] at the Monastery of Paray-le-Monial.

Friends,
As you may have been able to determine, even if you cannot translate French, the words on the card mean the following:

At the top:
The Revelation of the Sacred Heart

At the bottom:
The apparition of Our Lord to the blessed Margaret Mary [Alacoque], religious sister of the Order of the Visitation of St. Mary [the BVM] at the Monastery of Paray-le-Monial.

[Micki, I realize that there is not enough room for you to add this beside the card. No problem!]
