Feast of St. Madeleine Sophie
Today we have the Sunday Mass but it is still the Feast of St. Madeleine Sophie, the foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart. She had a real vision for an international society that would educate young girls. Here is something about her:
St. Madeleine Sophie must be happy to see all that the Society of the Sacred Heart in all parts of the world is doing for justice and our desire to make the world a better place by spreading the Love of the Heart of Jesus.
I was struck by the Pope's homily on May 22 when he said that a Christian must be full of joy. Jesus spoke of peace, love and joy and these three must be part of our lives. St. Madeleine Sophie told us to give joy to others. In giving joy to others, we are giving Jesus joy!
Today's Gospel reminds us: "Let not your hearts be troubled...."
