St. Claude de la Colombière

St. Claude de la Colombière
St. Claude de la Colombière (1641 – 1682) was a French Jesuit priest and confessor to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, the nun whom Jesus showed His Sacred  Heart. St. Claude was a very holy and wise Spiritual Director who guided St. Margaret Mary during the time she was receiving the visions. St. Claude eventually promoted the devotion to the Sacred Heart and wrote many books about faith and prayer. His feast day is on 15 February.
