“The Christian who desires to follow Jesus
carrying His cross must bear in mind,
that the name “Christian” means
“learner or imitator of Christ”

take up the cross
and follow Him.”
“When I am before the Blessed Sacrament.
I feel such a lively faith that I can’t describe it.
Christ in the Eucharist is almost tangible to me…
When it is time for me to leave,
I have to tear myself away
from His sacred presence.”
“Lord, by the words of consecration,
the substance of the bread and wine is converted
into the substance of your Body and Blood.
All powerful Lord, say over me the word
which will change me into You.”
St Anthony Mary Claret (1807-1870)
“The sun of our lives is the Eucharist.
…Live each day with the Eucharistic Christ.”
“Plant your heart in Jesus Crucified
and all the thorns will seem like roses.”
“Whoever finds Mary,
finds the way to Salvation.”
…Run, run to Mary, our dearest Mother.
Cling to her all-powerful arm.
Take shelter beneath her mantle,
invoke her with all your heart
and she will come full of compassion,
to sustain your wavering strength.”
