The Blessed Sacrament represents the apex of our spiritual life. No one ever became a saint without devotion to the Holy Eucharist. Listen to the saints and imitate them. When you are troubled, run to Christ in the tabernacle. He waits for you!

St. Angela Foligno: "If we but paused for a moment to consider attentively what takes place in this Sacrament, I am sure that the thought of Christ's love for us would transform the coldness of our hearts into a fire of love and gratitude."

St. Jean Vianney: "All the good works in the world are not equal to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass because they are the works of men; but the Mass is the work of God. Martyrdom is nothing in comparison for it is but the sacrifice of man to God; but the Mass is the sacrifice of God for man."

St. Maximilian Kolbe: "You come to me and unite Yourself intimately to me under the form of nourishment. Your Blood now runs in mine, Your Soul, Incarnate God, compenetrates mine, giving courage and support. What miracles! Who would have ever imagined such!"… "If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion."…

St. Leonard of Port Maurice: “For myself, I believe that were it not for holy Mass, at this moment the world would be in the abyss, unable to bear up under the mighty load of its iniquities. Mass is the potent prop that holds the worl upon its base. Therefore, when we are assisting at it, we ought to practice that which once Alphonsus of Albuquerque did, who, finding himself with his fleet in danger of perishing during a fierce and terrific tempest, adopted the following means: He took in his arms an innocent little child which was on board his ship, and lifting it up toward Heaven, he said, ‘If we are sinners, this creature is certainly free from sin; O Lord, for love of this innocent, remit to us the death we deserve!’ Will you believe it? The spectacle of that stainless babe was so pleasing to God that He tranquilized the sea, and changed  into joy for these unfortunates their terror of a death already imminent. Now, what do you believe is done by the Eternal Father when the priest, lifting in the air the thrice-saved Victim, shows to Him the innocence of His Divine Son? Ah, then His compassion cannot resist the sight of the most spotless innocence of Jesus, and He feels as if compelled to calm our storms, and to provide for all our necessities…hope breathes again; and if we but throw it not away by our own mismanagement, we have holy paradise within our grasp.” Pray with the psalmist (18): I love you, O Lord, my strength. All things are possible in Him.
