Saint for 2011

Michele of Simply Michele has generously offered to give everyone a saint for the year 2011.  If you'd like to participate, leave her a comment at her blog.  

This is a great way to jump start your spirituality for the new year and learn about a new saint. 


My saint for 2011 is St. Madeline Sophie Barat--someone I'd never heard of.  She founded the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and was born in 1779 in France.

"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
