On the Feast of St John Eudes

St John Eudes is a relatively little-known saint in our country, but he was a giant in French Catholicism and quite influential in the spirituality of Saint Jeanne Jugan. Today as we celebrate his feast, we share this beautiful prayer to the sacred Heart of Jesus, the focus of Eudes' spirituality. The photo is from St. Peter's Basilica in Rome.
