First FridayDevotion to the Sacred Heart
St. Claude la Colombiere was the spiritual director of St. Margaret Mary, Apostle of the Sacred Heart. Jesus revealed himself and His Most Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary. Claude made an offering to the Sacred Heart of Jesus because of the deep sorrow he felt because humanity falls so short of God’s gift to us.
”In reparation for so many insults and such cruel ingratitude I offer you my heart, with all the gestures of which it is capable. I give myself over to you totally. I wish to forget myself in order to lift all obstacles that prevent my access to your divine Heart, which you have the goodness to open up for me. I desire to enter into this Heart and live and die within it with your most faithful servants, all penetrated by and ablaze with your love.”
St. Claude la Colombiere, pray for us.
St. Margaret Mary, pray for us.
