“I shall simply tell you, as a true friend in the adorable Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, that when I pray to him for you this thought occurs to me: if you want to live wholly for him and attain that perfection he desires of you, you must make a complete sacrifice of yourself and of all that you have, without reserve, to his Sacred Heart. You must no longer will anything but with the will of this most loving Heart, love nothing except with his love, act only according to the lights he gives you, undertake nothing without first asking his counsel, and help. All the glory must be his. You must thank him for the ill as well as for the good success of your undertakings, always satisfied, never worrying about anything. As long as this divine Heart is satisfied, loved, and glorified, that must be enough for us….
After that you will not regard yourself in any other way than as belonging to and dependent upon the adorable Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ. You must have recourse to it in all your necessities and take up your abode there in so far as you can. He will make up for what is wanting in your imperfect actions and sanctify your good ones if only you conform yourself in everything to his holy will. He has great plans in store for you.”
~St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
In case you missed it, here is Kodi Lee’s audition for America’s Got Talent. It’s a tear-jerker, for not only is the performance beautiful, but its is all the more special because Mr. Lee is both blind and autistic.

“You may have seen people complaining about the money raised for Notre Dame saying it could go to such more worthy causes. Reminds me of John 12…
Mary took a liter of costly perfumed oil made from genuine aromatic nard and anointed the feet of Jesus and dried them with her hair; the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.
Then Judas the Iscariot, one of his disciples, and the one who would betray him, said, “Why was this oil not sold for three hundred days wages and given to the poor?”…
“Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.”
God speaks to each of our hearts in their own unique way. These men felt called by God to contribute- do not criticize them. If you feel called to give to different causes/charities, please do. But please don’t tell others what causes/charities they must support.” ~Amanda Ruiz
Wishing you all a most blessed and holy Easter Triduum!
