St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Today is the feast of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque whose vision of Christ on December 27, 1673 during adoration, helped to advance devotion to the Sacred Heart.

Scripture says that
from within Him rivers of living water shall flow
~John 7:37
and he (was) pierced for our transgressions.
~ Isaiah 53:5
After his death for us on the cross,
one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water.
~John 19:34
Jesus invites each of us to
come to me, all you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon your shoulders and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. Your souls will find rest, for my yoke is easy and my burden light
~Matthew 11:28-29

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
