St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque is the patron of polio patients and devotees of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She was healed from a crippling disorder by the Blessed Virgin in a vision. In 1675 Saint Margaret Mary received a revelation from Jesus which included 12 promises to her and those others whom practice a true devotion to his Sacred Heart. Her feast day is celebrated by different groups on either October 16th or 17th, or October 20th in Canada.
