Make Him Happy!

We beseech Mary Immaculate that She herself keep company with Jesus in our souls and make Him happy as no else has so far succeeded in doing.

We beseech her to offer to Jesus fitting reparation, both for our infidelities and for the many insults He every day endures throughout the world from sinners.

A Forgotten Truth – Sacrilegious Communions Offend Our Lord

Judas' Kiss

“…in Judas, the Divine Savior saw not only the Iscariot, the apostle of Jewish nationality, but likewise the coming legion of traitorous souls. In the traitor’s kiss, He felt the outrage of so many sacrilegious Communions.”

(Father Jose Guadalupe Trevino from The Holy Eucharist)

 

Lasting Embrace

“Come to the foot of my tabernacle and, far from the impure and degraded world, breathe in an atmosphere of purity. Come and eat My Body and drink My Blood, and I shall live within your heart, and My arms shall enfold you in an embrace which it depends on your free will to make last till the eternal embrace in heaven.”

(From The Holy Eucharist by Father Jose Guadalupe Trevino)

Do Not Look For Excuses

“Do not look for other excuses. Try it, and find out by your own experience. Do not wait until tomorrow. Today, go and spend a few moments with Jesus, whether He is within the tabernacle or exposed in the monstrance.

Let your weary and wounded heart be penetrated by the peaceful atmosphere of the  sanctuary and your soul be bathed in the light streaming forth from the Eucharistic Sun.

And, tomorrow, I am sure, you will return.”

(From The Holy Eucharist – Father Jose Guadalupe Trevino)

Imagine

[Imagine Jesus saying these words to you:]

“…the world considers it just and reasonable that you should spend long hours in social duties, in the exchange of visits, in maintaining friendly relations. It is often done unwillingly, nevertheless it is done.

But if I ask for more frequent daily Mass and Communions, more fervent visits to Me in the Sacrament of My love, some moments of prayer in the sanctuary of My home, My most fervent pleadings are considered absurd requests. A God does not have this right. I, alone, am always the Fool!

(From Twenty Hours by Rev. Mateo Crawley-Boevey, SS.CC)
