Yes I heard she failed at most everything she set out to do, yet became a saint in the end, what an inspiration.

Yes. It makes one think of heroic perseverance and virtues associated with it.

Fortitude.. patience.. joy amidst sorrows.. resignation to God's will..

I understand that she was a founding member of the Society of the Sacred Heart. That makes her special.

The devotion to the Sacred Heart is a special one..

Every home should have an image of Our Lord's Sacred Heart in an honored place. I have seen how good it is.

It's a splendid devotion, honoring Our Lord's Sacred Heart each day with prayers, and the promises of Our Lord will certainly help one's life.

Dear Odhiambo,

Was she recently beatified and canonized or was she beatified and canonized before Vatican II?

God bless you,

Hi Therese!
I have Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopaedia of Saints. According this book which is my reference to anything "saint"  Grin, she was beatified  in 1940, well before Vatican II.
the canonization was more recent, in 1988, by Pope John Paul II.

'When the door of the steam baths is continually left open, the heat inside rapidly escapes through it; likewise the soul, in its desire to say many things, dissipates its remembrance of God through the door of speech, even though everything it says may be good. Thereafter the intellect, though lacking appropriate ideas, pours out a welter of confused thoughts to anyone it meets, as it no longer has the Holy Spirit to keep its understanding free from fantasy. Ideas of value always shun verbosity, being foreign to confusion and fantasy. Timely silence, then, is precious, for it is nothing less than the mother of the wisest thoughts.'

It takes a lot of courage for sheep to do this!

Of course there're those who will always speak out at the wrong times too, to provide bad example.

'If you wish to know what sort of revenge is lawful and holy, I will tell you what a father inflicted on the murderer of his son. The history is told by Father Gifolfi, in his life of Caesar de Consulibus, whose only son it was that was murdered. The murderer, not knowing whose it was, took shelter in the palace of Caesar himself. But Caesar knew that he was the murderer of his child, and what did he do? He received him kindly, and gave him money and a horse, that he might save his life. This is the manner in which true Christians take revenge.'

St. John Vianney

That's a good one haji  Grin
But, we are supposed to love our body and treat it with respect as it is the Temple of the Lord, are we not?

Very true. I think the only one who can  attempt to correct an errant clergy is either an equal or even better, one of superior rank. These people are God's anointed and we are supposed to give them all respect, deserved or not.
