Saint of the Day

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690)
As a child, Margaret was devoted to the Blessed Sacrament. After being miraculously cured from paralysis by Our Lady, she entered a convent where she was known for her obedience, humility, and love of suffering. She regularly had visions of Christ, who told her that she was to be the apostle of the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She established the custom of receiving Holy Communion on the first Friday of each month.
