St. Margaret Mary Alacoque: Saint of the Sacred Heart | One-Minute Saints

by | Oct 16, 2020 | One-Minute Saints, Videos

“Behold the Heart that has loved you so much.” This was the message that St. Margaret Mary Alacoque received from Jesus and the message that we all need to let sink in. Fr. Joe Laramie, SJ, reflects on the revelation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Take a moment to feel your heartbeat. 

A beating heart is a sign of life and health. 

It is also a symbol of God’s powerful love for us. 

Hi, I’m Fr Joe Laramie, with the Jesuit Post

A St. Margaret Mary Alacoque had a powerful encounter with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She was a young French sister in the 1600s. Over a number of weeks, she had a series of powerful visions and prayers centered on the Heart of Christ. 

She saw how His Heart beats with love for us, at every moment of every day. He has a Risen Body, and a heart that is both human and divine. 

Among Jesus’s revelations to Margaret Mary was simply, “Behold the Heart that has loved you so much.”

His Heart continues to beat with love for me and you today. The saints take time to notice His love–through prayer, journaling, and spiritual conversation.

Margaret Mary teaches us to let our hearts beat in rhythm with the Heart of Christ.

St Margaret Mary Alacoque, pray for us.
