    St. Margaret of Cortona, I admire you for in your case sanctity did not come easily, yet you chose to repent and give The Holy Eucharist the most important priority in your life. Bless us poor sinners during this holy season of Lent. Help us through your holy and powerful intercession. Amen

    God Bless All
