Nourish Your Soul

“Nourish your soul also on Holy Communion, which, is to say, the incarnation of divine love in you, and the actual source of it. Receive Communion in spite of everything; receive as often as you are allowed. You will tell me that you are not worthy of it: true, even the angels are not worthy; all our holiness cannot merit a single Communion in a lifetime. But you need it; you are frail, and it is a strengthening food; you wish to love God, and it is the Sacrament of love. Looking at it from this angle, we ought to receive Communion, if that were possible, at every hour of every day.”

St. Peter Julian Eymard from A Eucharistic Handbook
