Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque

Today is the feast of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, to whom our Lord showed the devotion of His Sacred Heart. She also happens to be my patroness. 

“And He [Christ] showed me that it was His great desire of being loved by men and of withdrawing them from the path of ruin that made Him form the design of manifesting His Heart to men, with all the treasures of love, of mercy, of grace, of sanctification and salvation which it contains, in order that those who desire to render Him and procure Him all the honour and love possible, might themselves be abundantly enriched with those divine treasures of which His heart is the source.” — from Revelations of Our Lord to St. Mary Margaret Alacoque

Unfortunately, I missed Mass today (I slept in) but tomorrow is her feast in the old calendar, so I’ll still be going to Mass on her feast in a way.
