Father Joseph McShane of the Franciscans of the Immaculate told me this story:
Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque asked the Sacred Heart of Jesus which was the saint closest to His Sacred Heart in Heaven…A cloud a peered and out stepped Saint Francis. Jesus said this is the saint closest to my heart in heaven…
I told the Dominicans this story and they said “Ya, but Saint Thomas Aquinas was closest to His head!”
Pretty funny. Thank you Father Joseph McShane for sharing this!
