Our Saint Margaret Mary has left us a beautiful legacy in devotion to the loving Heart of Jesus.
In a special visitation to our saint, Jesus said to her:
“Behold this heart which has so loved all God’s people
and receives so little love in return.”
One of our most blessed missions in life is to share the abundance of God’s love – a love so great that he sent his Son to show us how to live – how to “LIVE JESUS, the motto of the Visitation order.
Her advice for us today:
“Take as your model and inspiration in every event and frame of mind, these words of our Lord: “Thy will be done!” adding: “My God, I abandon myself to Your loving heart.”
Jesus, gentle and humble of heart:
Make my heart like unto yours.
Still another inspiring thought from Wendy Wright, a true Salesian scholar:
Let us strive to make our hearts beat in rhythm with the Heart of Jesus as we seek to embrace his Good Pleasure in the events of our lives.
May the blessings of this feast day fill your hearts, dear readers, and may they bring you to an ever clearer understanding of God’s tremendous love for you individually.
Sr. Mary Berchmans Hannan, VHM
