Quote of the day, 26 May: Venerable Margaret of the Blessed Sacrament

The Child Jesus wants us to seek Him alone, in simplicity of spirit; and the Divine Simplicity banishes from our souls all folly and depravity. No amusement: neither in ourselves nor in creatures. Nothing but Jesus who is sought and served simply and in truth.

Venerable Margaret of the Blessed Sacrament

Conversations with Mother Elizabeth of the Trinity

Note: We recall the death of Venerable Margaret of the Blessed Sacrament (Margaret Perigot) on 26 May 1648 in the Carmel of Beaune, France. She had a particular devotion to the Infant Jesus and soon discovered that He entrusted her with a particular mission: to make him known as the Little King of Grace. Venerable Margaret died young but devotion to the Infant Jesus of Beaune and Venerable Margaret continues to this day.
