16. St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, Virgin

Born in the diocese of Autun, France, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque consecrated her heart, while yet a child, to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

In order to dedicate herself wholly to her Divine Spouse, The Saint joined the Visitation Order of nuns at twenty-three years of age at Paray-le-Monial in Charleroi. She was subjected to many trials and sufferings, but she underwent all for the love of Jesus. In 1675, she was chosen by God to reveal to the Christian World the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. St. Margaret and St. Claude de la Colombiere, S.J., were the chief instrument of the Feast of the Sacred Heart. She died in 1690 and was canonized in 1920 by Pope Benedict XV.

PRAYER: Lord, pour out upon us spirit with which You enriched St. Margaret Mary. Help us to know the love of Christ, which is too great for human knowledge, and to be filled with the fullness of god. Amen.
