To the Religious of the Sacred Heart in Paris

St. John Francis Regis (1597-1640)
window is located in the Round House 

January 8, 1836 ~ Mother Duchesne writes to the Religious of the Sacred Heart in Paris, "The lowliness to which the infant Jesus abases Himself at this season, which is consecreted to the memory of His profound humiliations, will make you welcome the greetings and good wishes from the least and most obscure of all the Convents of the Sacred Heart.  But this house is expressly dedicated to St. Francis Regis and we have here at Florisssant the shrine promised by vow in France to obtain his protection on our Amercian mission."
