The wisdom of  God said, ‘I will send to them prophets and apostles;

some of them they will kill and persecute’

1 Love wjpas0647

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 11:47-54.

The Lord said: “Woe to you! You build the memorials of the prophets whom your ancestors killed.
Consequently, you bear witness and give consent to the deeds of your ancestors, for they killed them and you do the building.
Therefore, the wisdom of God said,  ‘I will send to them prophets and apostles; some of them they will kill and persecute’
in order that this generation might be charged with the blood of all the prophets shed since the foundation of the world,
from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah who died between the altar and the temple building. Yes, I tell you, this generation will be charged with their blood!
Woe to you, scholars of the law! You have taken away the key of knowledge. You yourselves did not enter and you stopped those trying to enter.”
When he left, the scribes and Pharisees began to act with hostility toward him and to interrogate him about many things,
for they were plotting to catch him at something he might say.

St. Hedwig, Religious (1174-1243)

1 Sant_Edvige

SAINT HEDWIG
Religious
(1174-1243)

        St. Hedwig, the wife of Henry, Duke of Silesia, and the mother of his six children, led a  humble austere, and most holy life amidst all the pomp of royal state.

        Devotion to the Blessed Sacrament was the key-note of her life. Her valued privilege was to supply the bread and wine for the Sacred Mysteries, and she would attend each morning as many Masses as were celebrated.

        After the death of her husband she retired to the Cistercian convent of Trebnitz, where she lived under obedience to her daughter Gertrude, who was abbess of the monastery, growing day by day in holiness, till God called her to Himself, in 1242.

SAINT  MARGARET MARY ALACOQUE
Virgin
(1647-1690)

        Margaret Mary was born at Terreau in Burgundy, on the 22d July, 1647. Her childhood was unhappy and during her infancy she showed a wonderfully sensitive horror of the very idea of sin.

        In 1671 she entered the Order of the Visitation, at Paray-le-Monial, and was professed the following year. After purifying her by many trials, Jesus appeared to her in numerous visions, displaying to her his  Sacred Heart, sometimes burning as a furnace,and sometimes torn and bleeding on account of the coldness and sins of men.

        In. 1675 the great revelation was made to her that she, in union with Father de la Colombiere, of the Society of Jesus,  was to be the chief instrument for instituting the feast of the Sacred Heart, and for spreading that devotion throughout the world.

        She died on the 17th October, 1690.
