Be Truly Thankful and Grateful

Holy_Communion

“After Communion, one should spend at least a quarter of an hour in thanksgiving. This is the most precious time of our life since Jesus Christ really present in us is pleased to fill us, out of unequaled generosity, with His benefits and His virtues. We would show a lack of reverence and acquire guilt for shameless ingratitude were we to occupy our mind, our heart, or our senses with something irrelevant. It is appropriate especially to formulate prayers of gratitude, adoration, offering and petition.”

(Blessed Hyacinthe-Marie Cormier, O.P. from Instructions For Novices)
