Stick-to-itiveness

I Thirst Tabernacle.rev

“Spiritual practices require commitment and regularity if they are to transform us. Spiritual practices like … adoration before the Blessed Sacrament are journeys, not day trips into the realm of the sacred. They are not hobbies or occasional exercises that depend on our moods or our latest interests. They demand a personal discipline, a personal stick-to-itiveness.”

Truth Stings

Sanctuary

If you don’t want to spend an hour with God on Sunday, then what makes you think you want to spend eternity with Him?  And if you don’t want to spend eternity with Him, don’t worry, you won’t.

Father Rodger Fleming

You Are Present Lord!

“I am not in an audience with our Holy Father, nor am I in the presence of a saint from heaven, nor with some distinguished personality.

Kneel

Before me, dear Jesus, You are present under the frail appearance of the host. With the eyes of faith, I believe that You are present as my God, my Lord, my Redeemer, the Creator of heaven and earth, my all. I believe, dear Jesus, that You are truly present, body and blood, soul and divinity, in the most Blessed Sacrament.”
