Reflections of the Saints
"Always remain close to the Catholic Church, because it alone can give you true peace, since it alone possesses Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, the true Prince of Peace."
- St. Padre Pio
"We must understand that in order ‘to do’, we must first learn ‘to be’, that is to say, in the sweet company of Jesus in adoration."
- Pope John Paul II
"Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us."
- St. Alphonsus Liguori
"Jesus has made Himself the Bread of Life to give us life. Night and day, He is there. If you really want to grow in love, come back to the Eucharist, come back to that Adoration."
- Blessed Mother Teresa
"With all the strength of my soul I urge you young people to approach the Communion table as often as you can. Feed on this bread of angels from which you will draw the strength to fight inner battles… Because true happiness, dear friends, does not consist in the pleasures of the world or in earthly things, but in peace of conscience which we can have only if we are pure in heart and in mind."
- Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
"When I am before the Blessed Sacrament I feel such a lively faith that I can’t describe it. Christ in the Eucharist is almost tangible to me. When it is time for me to leave, I have to tear myself away from His sacred presence."
-St. Anthony Claret
"Make frequent visits to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and the devil will be powerless against you."
-St. John Bosco
"Adoration: The first obligation by which we are bound toward God is to honor Him. It is indeed a precept of the natural law itself that every inferior owes homage to his superior, and by so much the higher the superiority, so much the deeper the homage that should be offered."
"And He who resides on the throne of His greatness, He it is that must needs descend to lay himself a Victim on our altars, in order that the homage rendered may perfectly correspond to the eminence of that infinite Majesty."
- St. Leonard of Port Maurice
"Here on earth it is impossible to perform a more meritorious act than visiting Jesus often in the Holy Eucharist"
- St. Teresa of Avila
"Whenever I go to the chapel, I put myself in the presence of our good Lord, and I say to Him, ‘Lord, I am here. Tell me what you would have me to do.’ And then, I tell God everything that is in my heart. I tell him about my pains and my joys, and then I listen. If you listen, God will also speak to you."
- St. Catherine Labouré
"When you look at the crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you then. When you look at the Sacred Host, you understand how much Jesus loves you now."
- Blessed Mother Teresa
"That same day, when I was in church waiting for confession, I saw the same rays issuing from the monstrance and spreading throughout the church. This lasted all through the service. After the Benediction, [the rays shone out] to both sides and returned again to the monstrance. Their appearance was bright and transparent like crystal. I asked Jesus that He deign to light the fire of His love in all souls that were cold. Beneath these rays a heart will grow warm even if it were like a block of ice; even if it were hard as rock, it will crumble into dust.” from the Diary of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska (370)
