The Feast of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque

Today Father Jerry tells the story of the time Abraham Lincoln threw a man out of a 3rd story window… and for good reason! Watch Father’s new video and determine for yourself whether this really happened or if it was just a tall tale… More importantly, today the church celebrates The Feast of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque. In 1690 at the age of 43, a French mystic nun began to promote devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a feast which helped the church from the spirit of Jansenism, and promoted first Friday devotion.
