St. Claude de la Columbière

Claude was a French Jesuit in the middle of the seventeenth century. As a Jesuit, he pledged complete obedience to his superior, whom he viewed as an ambassador of Christ. This obedience gave him the freedom to be confident that he was doing God’s will for his life, whether he was being imprisoned for a crime he did not commit or spreading devotion to the Sacred Heart.
