Sayings of Saint Madeleine Sophie

In 1800 Madeleine Sophie Barat (1779-1865) founded the Society of the Sacred Heart, a community of women who currently live and minister in 43 countries on 5 continents and who together with their associates, colleagues and friends, constitute the family of the Sacred Heart worldwide.

Sophie, as she was known by her family and friends, was a remarkable administrator, an extraordinary educator and a visionary spiritual leader whose whole life was dedicated to the heart of Christ and to making God's love known. The words that accompany each image will change each month and are all excerpts from translations of her letters and conferences and have been made accessible in a more contemporary idiom.
