Let Us Console Jesus!

What consoles Jesus more than anything else, however, is that we understand His Eucharist; that is, that we understand the love it signifies and the suffering it represents. Then, indeed the soul feels the necessity of consoling Him, at least the way little ones console with their love and delicate tokens of affection, and in the manner John consoled Him, throwing ourselves into the arms of Christ, hiding ourselves in His bosom, so that His heart may feel close by the pulsations of another heart which understands and loves Him.

This is what we should be doing during our adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Whether it is in the daytime or at night, the hour of adoration should reproduce the beautiful scene of the Cenacle: John reclining at Jesus’ bosom. The Eucharistic soul has two places of honor, then: at the foot of the cross and on the bosom of Jesus. One demands the other; both complement each other.”
