“The Eucharist is the supreme proof of the love of Jesus. After this, there is nothing more but Heaven itself.”
St. Peter Julian Eymard
“When we go before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament we represent the one in the world who is in most need of God’s Mercy.” We “Stand in behalf of the one in the world who does not know Christ and who is farthest away from God and we bring down upon their soul the Precious Blood of The Lamb.”
Pope St. John Paul II
“O Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, I would like to be filled with love for You; keep me closely united with You, may my heart be near to Yours. I want to be to You like the apostle John. O Mary of the Rosary, keep me recollected when I say these prayers of yours; bind me forever, with your rosary, to Jesus of the Blessed Sacrament. Blessed be Jesus, my love..,”
Pope St. John XXIII, Journal of a Soul
“For One in such a lofty position to stoop so low is a marvel that is staggering. What sublime humility and humble sublimeness, that the Lord of the Universe, the Divine Son of God, should stoop as to hide Himself under the appearance of bread for our salvation! Behold the humble way of God, my brothers. Therefore, do not hold yourselves to be anything of yourselves, so that you may be entirely acceptable to One Who gives Himself entirely to you.”
St. Francis of Assisi
“O Sisters, if we would only comprehend the fact that while the Eucharistic Species remain within us, Jesus is there and working in us inseparably with the Father and the Holy Spirit and therefore the whole Holy Trinity is there…,”
St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi
Just beautiful thank you for sharing
Thank you, Joanne. It’s always a blessing to “see” you here. I hope you are feeling better. I’ll be over to visit soon. 😉
Beautiful as always, my dear friend…especially the prayer from Pope St. John XXIII.
” O Mary of the Rosary, keep me recollected when I say these prayers of yours; bind me forever, with your rosary, to Jesus of the Blessed Sacrament. Blessed be Jesus, my love..”
Oh – Amen!! xox
I love that one too, Trish. I’m trying to remember to say it from time to time..being bound to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament by the Holy Rosary. So lovely. I think reading Journal of a Soul would be wonderful. I’m so behind on my stack of books though! I have been unable to resist all the $.99 Catholic classics you can get on Amazon for your kindle. So many wonderful treasures!
Thanks for commenting! Love you dear sister!
If only we understood properly, and really appreciated the Gift we have been given. I need to reflect upon this more. Thank you for these quotes. God bless you!
Hi Sue! I know exactly what you mean. It’s all so beyond our comprehension though. I often ask Jesus to help me understand better the sweet mysteries of Love hidden in the Blessed Sacrament…especially Holy Communion. I think we would die of joy, if we really understood. But, it’s good to keep asking, I think.
I’m reflecting “more” with you 🙂 Love and many hugs!!!
