Jules Chevalier had a very good relationship with his mother. His mother taught him to be a good Christian. She often gave him a taste for the practice of his religion. Jules Chevalier gives witness to this fact in a poem that he wrote in later days. And this is what he wrote.
“Heart of Jesus, I was still very young when my childish voice learned to say your name; I had barely reached the age of reason. When I learnt to bless and love you. My good and tender mother said to me: My child, let the Heart of Jesus always be Your support, Your treasure, You light. Then often she loved to take me to your Temple”
Here we learnt of how Jules Chevalier and his mother have a good relationship. And that is why it is very easy for Jules Chevalier to turn to his Mother Mary, and to ask her for help, even from the very beginning of our Congregation.
Jules Chevalier promised Our Lady that, if She helped him with the finance and housing necessary to found his little society (the MSC), he would cause her to be honored in a special way.
Mary did help him, and in his turn kept his promise to Mary. He gave her a new name, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.
We are reminded here to remember that WE are not alone in this journey especially in the Mission God has entrusted to YOU and to ME. WE have a wonderful companion, Our Mother, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, who leads us close to the Heart of her Son.
