St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to thank you for being the messenger of the Sacred Heart–indeed, of the United Hearts. I know it to be a joy and a cross. This, indeed, is the way of the Divine Will–to accept everything as a grace, whether it is a cross [which is a grace in disguise] or a joy. Both are viewed as one by those in union with God, for His Hand is in both.”

“Make the routine a joy by giving it as a beautiful gift to the Lord. In the same way, give even the slightest displeasure to the Lord joyfully. When it is most difficult to do so, run to our Heavenly Mother for help. Run to the Heart of our Savior, which is always ready to restore your peace. I, too, your little saint of the Most Sacred Heart, am your ally and intercessor in Heaven.”
