St. Madeleine Sophie Barat (1779-1865) 
The legacy of Madeleine Sophie Barat can be found in the more than 100
schools operated by her Society of the Sacred Heart, institutions known for
the quality of the education made available to the young. Sophie herself
received an extensive education, thanks to her brother, Louis, 11 years
older and her godfather at Baptism. Himself a seminarian, he decided that
his younger sister would likewise learn Latin, Greek, history, physics and
mathematics-always without interruption and with a minimum of companionship.
By age 15, she had received a thorough exposure to the Bible, the teachings
of the Fathers of the Church and theology. Despite the oppressive regime
Louis imposed, young Sophie thrived and developed a genuine love of
learning.  For more, follow the link below:

He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter
was distressed that he had said to him a third time, "Do you love me?" and
he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." Jesus
said to him, "Feed my sheep. ~John 21:15-19

What do we do if we love someone?  Do our actions focus on them?  On us?
Jesus tells Simon, "Feed my sheep."  Love the ones I love. Don't focus on
yourself ... or even on me, but on the very important sheep.  We need to do
the same.

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may love God above all things.  I pray that I may feed the
Lord's sheep, helping to draw them to Himself.

Patty requests prayers for a good outcome for a medical problem. 

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
