Hoping all things! ...

"May your heart be an altar, from which the bright flame 
of unending thanksgiving ascends to heaven." ~ St Mary Euphrasia

“Draw near to our Lord,
thoroughly aware of your own nothingness,
and you may hope all things
from His Goodness and Mercy.
Never forget
that Jesus Christ is no less generous
in the Blessed Sacrament
than He was during His mortal life on earth.

St Mary Euphrasia Pelletier
France ~ 1796-1868
Her "three inseparable devotions":
Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Eucharist, Mary
Foundress ~ Sisters of the Good Shepherd
By time of death:  established 110 convents in 35 countries
Motto: "One person is of more value than a world." 
FEAST DAY - April 24


"Go after the lost sheep without other rest than the cross,
other consolation than work,
other thirst than for justice." ~ St Mary Euphrasia
