Sunday Reflection – 8 September – Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C
“When Mass ended I remained with Jesus to render Him thanks.
My thirst and hunger do not diminish after I have received Him in the Blessed Sacrament but rather, increase steadily.
Oh, how sweet was the conversation I held with Paradise this morning.
The Heart of Jesus and my own, if you will pardon my expression, fused.
They were no longer two hearts beating but only one.
My heart disappeared, as if it were, a drop in the ocean.”
St Pio of Pietrelcina aka St Padre Pio (1887 to 1968)
