St. John Eudes

St. John Eudes Parish was founded in 1963, at a time when the West San Fernando Valley was expanding greatly. Some of the Old West still gives our city of Chatsworth a certain flavor, but we attempt to bring to the needs of our households the strength of our Catholic Christian faith that can be applied to the realities of our day.

We have a vital parish life that is centered on our worship, and we bring many talents and resources together to assure that our praise and homage of God is a worthy offering. Opportunities are offered for growth in prayer, in knowledge of our faith, and in service to others in the name of Christ.

May this informational resource help you to discover among us an encouragement to serve the Lord with joy!

Prayers & Quotes by St. John Eudes
(Mouseover to Start/Stop Scrolling)
“Our wish, our object, our chief preoccupation must be to form Jesus in ourselves, to make his spirit, his devotion, his affections, his desires and his disposition live and reign there. All our religious exercises should be directed to this end. It is the work which God has given us to do unceasingly.” (St. John Eudes, The Life and Reign of Jesus in Christian Souls)

“God inspired in the heart of the pure Virgin Mary His own intense love for humility, and abhorrence of pride. She possessed, even from her infancy, a far greater horror of pride and ambition, and a far deeper love for humility than all the saints together. It was the first virtue that she practices. She abased and humbled herself before all. She esteemed herself, and would have been happy to be treated by others, as the last of the creatures. By marvelous radiance of her Immaculate Conception, she beheld herself susceptible to the guilt of the children of Adam, except that God miraculously preserved her, and she considered that she might have been capable of all the sins in the world, whose source is original sin. It was this humility which attracted to her the countless graces which rendered her worthy to be the Mother of God, Queen of heaven and earth.”

“Give thanks to Almighty God who resists the proud and gives grace to the humble, and offer Him all the glory that this Maiden accorded to His majesty by her practice of the richest humility during her childhood and throughout the rest of her life.”

“The Christian life is a continuation and completion of the life of Christ in us. We should be so many Christs here on earth, continuing His life and His works, laboring and suffering in a holy and divine manner in the spirit of Jesus.”

“Let us therefore give ourselves to God with a great desire to begin to live thus, and beg Him to destroy in us the life of the world of sin, and to establish His life within us.”

Magnificat of St. John Eudes
A Hymn of Praise and Thanksgiving
to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
and to the Holy Heart of Mary


My soul doth magnify the admirable
Heart of Jesus and Mary,
And my spirit rejoices in my great Heart.
Jesus and Mary have given me their Heart,
This immense Heart in order that all in me
May be performed in its love.
Infinite thanks to them
for their ineffable gift.

This heart infinitely merciful has
done great things for me;
It has possessed me from the
womb of my mother.
Infinite thanks for His ineffable gifts.

The abyss of my misery has called
on the abyss of His Mercy.
Infinite thanks for His ineffable gifts.

This Heart infinitely meek has presented me
With blessings of its sweetness.
Infinite thanks for His ineffable gifts.

“O Lord, You have created me for Yourself, to love You and to enjoy You, infinite Good, ineffable Beauty; do not permit me to lose sight of this sublime end toward which I must tend; do not permit me to wander among the wretched satisfactions that vain, feeble creatures can offer me.”

“The air that we breathe, the bread that we eat, the heart which throbs in our bosoms, are not more necessary for man that he may live as a human being, than is prayer for the Christian that he may live as a Christian.”
