When You Adore

“When you adore the Blessed Sacrament consider yourself the representative of the whole human race with
Jesus. . . That He may give strength to the weak, light to those who live in darkness. That souls may flee from sin,
that sinners repent, that those consecrated to God be filled with zeal and holiness”

(Blessed Father Giacomo Alberione).

Keep Your Gaze ON The Divine Victim

“At all times let us keep our gaze fixed lovingly on the divine Victim being immolated
on the altar. And let us allow ourselves to be immolated at the same time. Weeping
before the altars that are the object of indifference or profanation, may we love and
make up for the coldness of those who do not know how to return love for love,”

(Marie-Deluil Martiny, Mother Mary of Jesus, foundress of the Daughters of the
Heart of Jesus)

Come To Adore Him!

Let weak and frail man come here suppliantly to adore the Sacrament of Christ, not to discuss high things, or wish to penetrate difficulties, but to bow down to secret things in humble veneration, and to abandon God’s mysteries to God, for Truth deceives no man—Almighty God can do all things. Amen.

St. Paul of the Cross

How Much Do I Love You?

“How much do I love You, O my Jesus! I wish to love You with my whole heart, yet I do not love You enough. I have but one desire, that of being near You, in the Blessed Sacrament. Thou art the sweet Bridegroom of my soul. My Jesus, my love, my all, gladly would I endure hunger, thirst, heat and cold to remain always with You in the Blessed Sacrament. Amen.”
St. John Neumann

How Can We Be So Neglectful and Cold?

I should never cease to express my sorrow for the neglect and coldness which is shown to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. How great must be His love for us, since He does not become disgusted with so much ingratitude. People go to the trouble to see various objects of beauty, curiosity, or entertainment. Yet, here upon the altar is the grandest, greatest, most magnificent of all beings. How dull can the human mind be! How hard can the human heart become! This is our all-loving Savior, our God! In Him we live, and move, and exist. Truly, without Him we are nothing. In Him alone shall I find perfect peace and all-satisfying happiness.

(The Sacrifice of the Mass – Cardinal Giovanni Bona)

Go To The Hidden Jesus

“Beloved souls, in suffering and in joy, go to Jesus hidden in the Sacred Host and let
the sweetness of His loving gaze fill you.”

“Like the sick who expose their diseased bodies to the healing rays of the sun, expose
miseries, no matter what they are, to the beams of light streaming forth from the
Sacred Host.”

(From “The Holy Eucharist” by Jose Guadalupe Trevino)

The Most Tender of Friends

“Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the most tender of friends with souls who seek to please Him. His goodness knows how to proportion itself to the smallest of His creatures as to the greatest of them. Be not afraid then in your solitary conversations, to tell Him of your miseries, fears, worries, of those who are dear to you, of your projects, and of your hopes. Do so with confidence and with an open heart.”

St. Damien of Molokai
