On this earth, when we receive an important person, we bring out the best – lights, music, formal dress. How should we prepare to receive Christ into our soul? Have we ever thought how we would behave if we could only receive Him once in a lifetime?
(St. Josemaria Escriva from Christ is Passing By)
“I will tell you that for me the tabernacle has always been a Bethany, a quiet and pleasant place where Christ resides: a place where we can tell Him about our worries, our sufferings, our desires, our joys, with the same sort of simplicity and naturalness as Martha, Mary and Lazarus. That is why I rejoice when I stumble upon a church in a town or country; it’s another tabernacle, another opportunity for the soul to escape and join in intention our Lord in the Sacrament.”
