The Spiritual Banquet

“How wonderful are the treasures which are enclosed in the Divine Eucharist! I exhort you, even though you live in the world, to receive Communion often, but with piety. Holy Communion is the most efficacious means of uniting one’s self to God.

Always prepare yourself well for this banquet. Have a very pure heart, and watch over your tongue, for it is on the tongue that the sacred Host is laid.

Carry our Lord home with you after thanksgiving, and let your heart be a living tabernacle for Jesus.

Visit Him often I this interior tabernacle, offering Him your homage, and the sentiments of gratitude with which divine love will inspire you. Preserve carefully the sentiments of love with which you are filled after Communion.”

St. John of the Cross
