Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque was born in the year 1647 in the diocese of Autun in France. She joined the Visitation sisters at Paray-le-Monial where she led a life of rapid progress along the way of perfection and was granted mystical revelations especially concerning the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She spared no effort in bringing about veneration of the Sacred Heart in the Church. She died on 17 October in the year 1690.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, fill our hearts with the spirit of charity which You gave so abundantly to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque. May we experience the love of Christ which surpasses all knowledge, and attain to the fullness of life You destine for us. We pray this in the most precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.S
