The Most Loving Heart of Jesus


"Your most loving Heart, O Jesus,
dwells in this Sacrament
burning with love for us
It is there continually performing
thousands of good deeds towards us."

St. John Eudes
France  ~ 1601-1680
Priest, gifted preacher,
encouraged devotion to the 'Twin' Hearts 
Especially desiring to counsel/defend endangered women,
he founded an association of priests (Eudists) and the
Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity
(now known as Good Shepherd Sisters)
FEAST DAY - August 19
Our wish, our object, our chief preoccupation must be to form Jesus in ourselves,
to make His spirit, His devotion, His affections, His desires and His disposition
live and reign there. All our religious exercises should be directed to this end.
It is the work which God has given us to do unceasingly.”

Ste John Eudes, ora pro nobis!


  1. Hello Janette! I hope this finds you well. Sorry I have not been able to stop by and leave a comment, and yes, I have missed do that. I have just read a couple and today's is so moving! I love the image of the Sacred Heart! St. John Eudes is a wonderful Saint and I am grateful to count him amongst my "special friends" in Heaven! Thank you for all you do! John K.

  2. Greetings, John! - Quite good to hear from you again and be reminded of your ever-seeking heart toward our Lord and His family. Enjoy a pleasant weekend.
