Oct 17 - “St. Margaret Mary Alacoque” © artwork by Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS. Happy Feast Day St. Margaret Mary!

Margaret Mary was chosen by Christ to arouse the Church to a realization of the love of God symbolized by the heart of Jesus.

Her early years were marked by sickness and a painful home situation. "The heaviest of my crosses was that I could do nothing to lighten the cross my mother was suffering." After considering marriage for some time, Margaret Mary entered the Order of Visitation nuns at the age of 24.
