Feast of July the First

“The Feast of July the First is central and the mother of all the feasts in the Congregation of the Rogationists of the Heart of Jesus. In fact, July 1, 1886 is the authentic foundation day of the ‘Pious Work of the Evangelical Rogation.’ Certainly, it was Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament who started to build up the Pious Work of the interests of His Heart, in one of the shanties of the Avignone slum since March 19, 1881, the very day which our Father celebrated the first feast in the small chapel dedicated to the Sacred Heart. From that day, ‘Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament took possession of those places, and in that field of the little poor people he planted the seed of this new little tree.’”
