Feast of St Francis de Sales

Today we celebrate the life of St Francis de Sales whose importance to the development of the devotion to the Sacred Heart has been noted previously on this blog. It is a good day to say one of his prayers.

May thy heart dwell always in our hearts!
May thy blood ever flow in the veins of our souls!
O sun of our hearts, thou givest life to all things by the rays of thy goodness!
I will not go until thy heart has strengthened me, O Lord Jesus!
May the heart of Jesus be the king of my heart!
Blessed be God.

The offertory prayer at mass today  is especially  relevant:

O lord kindle in our hearts that divine fire of the Holy Spirit  with which you wonderfully inflamed the most gentle soul of Saint Francis de Sales. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
