Sayings of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

 "Great graces are often attached to what seems trifling"

"Virtue does not consist in making good resolutions, nor in saying fine words, but in keeping one's resolutions and carrying out one's good intentions"

"When our Lord inspires us to with some good deed, He also gives the strength to do it."

"Nothing unites us so closely to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ as the cross which is the most precious pledge of His love." 

"To work or to suffer is all one to a heart that loves.  Let us, then, leave the future to the loving Providence of this divine Heart Which only asks of us fidelity to the present moment."

"We must not belong to God by halves; as God gives Himself entirely to the soul He loves, so does He desire to possess the soul's entire love."

"You must be careful to profit by the occassions of mortification and humiliation that come in your way, not avoiding or shunning them, for they are the principal means of uniting yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus."

Prayer to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

O St. Margaret Mary, permitted by the Sacred Heart of Jesus to become partaker of Its divine treasures, obtain for us, we beseech thee, from that adorable Heart, the graces that we need.  We ask for them with the boundless confidence; may the divine Heart be willing to grant them to us through thine intercession, so that once again It may, through thee, be glorified and loved.  Amen.
