October 16 – Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque

Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque

listenLord Jesus, You revealed Your Sacred Heart to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque and promised to provide comfort in our afflictions, peace in our homes, and abundant blessings in all our undertakings.  I dedicate myself and my home to Your Most Sacred Heart and I ask Saint Margaret Mary to pray for my understanding of what this means in my life.  Dear Jesus, bless my home, my family, and all our endeavors.  May we know Your mercy through a contrite heart and a repentant spirit.  May we benefit from Your charity in all our needs, especially those that help us to overcome difficulties.  Saint Margaret Mary, pray for me.  Amen.
