Quote/s of the Day – 2 August – The Memorial of St Peter Julian Eymard “Apostle of the Eucharist”
“During the days of His mortal life, Jesus was present in one place only. He dwelt in one house only. Few persons were privileged enough to enjoy His presence and listen to His words. But today in the Blessed Sacrament, He is, we may say, everywhere at one and the same time. In a way, His humanity shares the prerogative of His divine immensity which fills all things. Jesus is present in His entirety in an infinite number of temples and in each one of them. Since all the Christians scattered throughout the world are members of His Mystical Body, it does seem necessary that He, as the soul of it, should be everywhere present throughout the whole body, giving it life, and sustaining it in each one of His members.”
“Have a great love for Jesus in His divine Sacrament of Love;
that is the divine oasis of the desert.
It is the heavenly manna of the traveller.
It is the Holy Ark.
It is the Life and Paradise of love on earth.”
“When we work hard, we must eat well.
What a joy, that you can receive Holy Communion often!
It’s our life and support in this life – receive Communion often
and Jesus will change you into Himself.”
“Eucharistic adoration is the greatest of actions.
To adore is to share the life of Mary on earth
when she adored the Word Incarnate in her virginal womb,
when she adored Him in the Crib,
in the divine Eucharist.”
St Peter Julian Eymard
