Thought for the Day – 26 August – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
Visits to the Blessed Sacrament
“Let us consider the Infinite Goodness of Jesus.
He became man for us and spent thirty three years on earth, “doing good and healing all” (Acts 10:38).
More than this, He chose to remain with us until the end of time, hidden in the Blessed Sacrament, to be our Friend and Comforter and the Food of our souls.
In His Infinite Power and Goodness, is there anything more He could have done for us?
All day, He waits there, anxious to heal our ills, to console us in our troubles and, to give us the strength to persevere in our journey towards perfection and towards Heaven.
Let us listen to that loving Voice!
Do not be ungrateful for this miracle of Infinite Goodness.
Let us go to Jesus, as often as we can, especially in the evening, when our day is nearly over.
We shall find Him a True Friend, Who is always ready to listen – better still, He is a Friend Who is able and willing, to help us.”
