Speaking of: “The Most Holy Eucharist/The Holy Mass”
“I am going to the Church’s press, to the altar.
That is where the sacred wine of this delicious
and unique grape’s blood, flows constantly
and from which very few have the good fortune,
to be able to become intoxicated.
There, you know that – because I cannot do otherwise –
I will present you, to the Father of Heaven
united with His Son,
it is in Him and with Him,
that I am entirely yours in the Lord.”
“Lord Jesus, save them all.
I offer myself as a victim for all of them.
Make me stronger,
take my heart,
fill it with Your love
and then ask of me,
whatever You want.”
St Pio of Pietrelcina “Padre Pio” OFM CAP. (1887-1968)
“However it is very necessary to nourish one’s soul also
and since nothing created, can nourish the soul, which is spirit,
God wished to give Himself as food.”
“If only Christians could understand these words
of our Lord saying to them:
“In spite of your wretchedness, I desire to see from near,
this beautiful soul I have created for Myself.
I have made it so great,
that there is none but Me,
who is able to fill her.
I have made it so pure,
that there is only my Body
capable of feeding it.”
