WYD:Madrid Visitation & the Sacred Heart


Did you know that there are three Visitation Monasteries in Madrid?

Well, there are!

And what makes the First Monastery in Madrid special is that the relics of the SEVEN BEATIFIED MARTYRS OF THE MADRID VISITATION are there, while in addition, some of the Sisters lie respectfully in repose at the Valley of the Fallen.

These seven Visitation Sisters gave their lives during the Spanish Civil War in 1936 and were beatified by Blessed John Paul II in 1998.

So those who are gathering for the World Youth Day in Madrid in August may just want to pay a prayerful call on these Martyrs in the Visitation Chapel in Madrid. May their intercession for you bring you joy,and the gift of courage to stand up for your faith as they did!

IN ADDITION, POPE BENEDICT XVI WILL CONSECRATE ALL YOUTH TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS IN MADRID.

ST. MARGARET MARY ALACOQUE WHO RECEIVED THE REVELATIONS OF THE SACRED HEART, WAS A VISITATION SISTER!.

    I am publishing a book on Lectio Divina Bible Stories called Step In! Salesian Bible Meditations. In the appendix I tell the stories of Salesian Saints and Martrys with pictures of these members of the Salesian Family. May I have permission to use your image of the Seven Visitation Martyrs for my book? If possible could you send me the jpeg image as well?

    in Christ and in de Sales,

    Tom
