Catechism on the Real Presence

All these quotes are from St John Vianney

When we are before the Blessed Sacrament, let us open our heart; our good God will open His.  We shall go to Him; He will come to us; the one to ask, the other to receive.  It will be like a breath from one to the other.

Our Lord wishes nothing but our happiness.

What happiness do we not feel in the Presence of Gd, when we are alone at His feet before the Sacred Tabernacle! ... Redouble your fervor; you are alone to adore your God; His eyes rest upon you alone.

To what outrages does Our Lord expose Himself in the Blessed Sacrament that He may remain in the midst of us!  He is there to console us, and therefore we ought often to visit Him.



and last one for today from Catechism on the Priesthood:
The priesthood is the love of the Heart of Jesus.  When you see the priest, think of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
