Reader MFG gave me a wonderful gift this past weekend, a beautiful (and quite large) flag of the Sacred Heart.  He got it from an outfit in France that sells a large number of French-Catholic themed flags on Ebay:

Isn’t that great?!?  They have others:

Most are very French in their design/orientation.  Very suitable for a
Chartres pilgimage, though!

I think I might pick up another couple of these.  Thanks again to MFG for the so very thoughtful gift and for the link to such a great Catholic merchant!

The Carillon-Sacré-Coeur is a French Canadian Flag that was adopted by Catholics in Quebec in the early 1900’s and sadly abandoned in the 1960’s.

You’re welcome! BTW Fr. Paul used to have some of these French type flags for his Eucharistic Processions at Blessed Sacrament. If a reader has any pictures from those days it might be worth posting.

The heart and cross in the center was the symbol of the Vendeens who fought for Throne and Altar during the French Revolution.

Cool.

Bastille Day is coming up — July 14th, also the Feast of St. Kateri Tekakwitha (evangelized by the French Jesuits in North America — the North American Martyrs).

One of my father’s brother’s birthdays was on Bastille Day.
Another of his brothers had a birthday on July 4th.

(Yeah, I also took French for my language courses in High School and College. Along with a couple electives in Italian and Spanish — a loooong time ago ; ) BTW my high school French teacher in small-town Texas public high school (DFW area) LOOOVED Latin. She wasn’t Catholic though. She even tried to offer Latin once while I was one of her French students. I showed an interest but she said if would be better for me to take a second year of French rather than switch to another language. She was a super teacher. When I got to (Catholic) college I went right into Intermediate French, didn’t have to review the first year… I had some great (public) high school teachers…
