“People ask me: ‘What will convert America and save the world?’ My answer is prayer. What we need is for every parish to come before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in holy hours of prayer.”
St. Teresa of Calcutta
“Holy Communion is the Body of Jesus under the form of bread, received as food. With His Body, He gives also His Soul, His Divinity, His merits, and His grace. All that He is, all that He has, He makes your own. No being on earth is richer and more honored than you are when you bear in your heart your God and Savior. You could not ask for more. Christ could not give you more.”
St. Angela of Foligno
“As [St. Margaret Mary] was constantly afraid of illusion, Our Lord once told her by which signs to recognize Him. His graces, He said, would always be accompanied by some humiliation or contradiction; they would be followed by confusion and a feeling of annihilation; moreover, they would never cause her to despise others, nor would they prevent her from following her Rule. Finally, they would result in a great love of Himself, in a perfect imitation of His example, in the desire to suffer for His sake, but to suffer unobserved, and in an unquenchable thirst for Holy Communion and for being near the Blessed Sacrament.
Margaret Mary spent almost every free moment before the Tabernacle. For devotion to the Sacred Heart seems to be inseparably linked to an ardent love for the Blessed Sacrament.”
