His Secret!

“And now listen, here is a secret, My secret: You who long for happiness, love Me! Tell Me all your troubles: yesterday’s griefs, today’s anguish, and the trials of the future.

Confide all your treasures, your hearts, your little ones, and especially your hope for the return of those gone away, to Me. Confide everything to Me. Keep My secret of unalterable peace: love Me with an immense love.”

(From Twenty Holy Hours by Rev. Mateo Crawley-Boevey)

Do You Love Him Enough?

“Jesus asked his disciples in Gethsemane, and He is asking each of us right now: ‘Could you not watch one hour with Me?’ What an affront, insult and gesture of ingratitude it would be to such a caring, loving and merciful God if (where it exists) Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration devotions had to be curtailed because so few of His people loved Him enough to be with Him”

Where and Why?

“Where are my priests? Why am I left alone in thousands of tabernacles all over the world? Why do so many of My priests rush by Me, never stopping to linger in the healing and strengthening radiance of My Eucharistic Face? Why are so many of My priests indifferent to the friendship I hold in reserve for them in the Sacrament that I instituted in order to be close to them and have them close to Me?”

(From In Sinu Jesu)

Come Here!

“Let weak and frail men come here in humble entreaty to adore the Sacrament of Christ, not to discuss high things, or to 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.”

No Greater Delight

“Loving souls find no greater delight than to be in the company of those whom they love. If, then, we love Jesus Christ much, behold, we are now in His Presence. Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament sees us, and hears us; shall we, then, say nothing to Him? Let us console ourselves in His company; let us rejoice in His glory, and in the love so many enamored souls bear Him in the most holy Sacrament. Let us desire  that all should love Jesus in the holy Sacrament and consecrate their hearts to Him.”

(St. Alphonsus Liguori  from Manual for Eucharistic Adoration)

Jesus Waits For His Priests

“I long for the adoration of My priests. I see other adorers before My Face and I rejoice in their presence, and I bless them with the tenderness of My Eucharistic Heart. But I look for My priests. Where are they? Why are they not the first to seek Me out in the Sacrament of My love and the last to leave Me at the close of the day? Even in the night I wait for for them. In the night hours it is possible to have an intimacy with Me that one cannot experience at other times. I wait for My priests. …I want My priests to come to Me, and I will draw them, one by one, into the radiance of My Eucharistic face. There I will refresh them and give them the choices gifts of My Heart.”
