Quote/s of the Day – 4 January – The Memorial of St Elizabeth Ann Seton (1774-1821) and St Manuel Gonzalez Garcia (1877–1940) the “Apostle of the Abandoned Tabernacles”

“God is everywhere, in the very air I breathe,
yes everywhere
but in His Sacrament of the Altar
He is as present actually and really
as my soul within my body;
in His Sacrifice daily offered
as really as once offered on the Cross!”

“Our Lord Himself I saw in this venerable Sacrament . . .
I felt as if my chains fell, as those of St Peter,
at the touch of the Divine messenger.”

“How sweet, the presence of Jesus
to the longing, harassed soul!
It is instant peace and balm to every wound.”

“My faith was looking at Jesus
through the door of that tabernacle,
so silent, so patient, so good, gazing right back at me…
His gaze was telling me much and asking me for more.
It was a gaze in which all the sadness of the Gospels was reflected;
the sadness of ‘no room in the Inn”;
the sadness of those words, “Do you also want to leave me?”;
the sadness of poor Lazarus begging for crumbs from the rich man’s table;
the sadness of the betrayal of Judas,
the denial of Peter,
of the soldier’s slap,
of the spittle of the Praetorium
and the abandonment of all.”my faith was look at jesus - st manuel gonzalez garcia 4 jan 2019

“The Heart of Jesus in the tabernacle looks at me.
He looks at me always.
He looks at me everywhere.
He looks at me as if He doesn’t have
anyone else to look at but me.”

St Manuel Gonzalez Garcia (1877–1940)
