Take My Suffering Lord!

“Living the Mass means never wasting suffering but always being good stewards of the trials God give us. There is hardly anything so tragic in the world as wasted pain. Think of how much suffering there is in hospitals, among the poor and the bereaved! Think how much of that suffering goes to waste. How many, or rather how few, of those lonesome, suffering, abandoned, crucified souls are saying with our Lord at the moment of Consecration: ‘This is my body, take it’.”

The Eucharist

“The greatest source for growth in devotion to Our Hearts [the Hearts of Jesus and His Mother Mary] is the Eucharist. I wish My people attend Mass often, daily if possible. What a great gift I have given to My people in the Eucharist!

Sacred and Immaculate Hearts

Yet so many of My people are indifferent to the treasures contained in the Mass. Think of it! My people are privileged to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass together with Me! And yet how many prefer to do other things rather than attend Mass. How this attitude offends My Sacred Heart!”
