On February 15th we join together in celebration of the feast day of St Claude de la Colombia, Jesuit priest and apostle of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. During one of the many revelations of Jesus to St Margaret Mary Alacoque, He told her, ‘Father Claude is my perfect friend and servant. His gift is to lead souls to God.’ The good Jesus never leads us astray – each and every time I read St Claude’s writings I receive help. God Bless!
On February 14th we celebrate the feast day of St Maro according to Butler’s Lives of the Saints. St Maro was a holy hermit of the late fourth and early fifth centuries in whom the Maronite Church, an Easter Catholic Church in full communion with Rome, takes it’s name and heritage. Living his whole life radically for God, he became – through the work of his disciples – the spiritual father of a whole branch of Catholic Christianity. God Bless!
