Our Daily Strength and Food

Happy Monday and Happy Feast of St. John Vianney!

Here's our quotation from the Diary of St. Faustina for the week: 

"I find myself so weak that were it not for Holy Communion I would fall continually.  One thing alone sustains me, and that is Holy Communion.  From it I draw my strength; in it is all my comfort.  I fear life on days when I do not receive Holy Communion.  I fear my own self.  Jesus concealed in the Host is everything to me.  From the tabernacle I draw strength, power, courage and light.  Here, I seek consolation in time of anguish.  I would not know how to give glory to God if I did not have the Eucharist in my heart."
(Notebook III, #1037)

This week, let's all try to meditate on the incredible gift of the Eucharist that God gives to us! If you can, maybe you could try to make it to Adoration or an extra Mass this week! 

"What does Jesus Christ do in the Eucharist? It is God who, as our Savior, offers himself each day for us to His Father's justice. If you are in difficulties and sorrows, He will comfort and relieve you. If you are sick, He will either cure you or give you strength to suffer so as to merit Heaven. If the devil, the world, and the flesh are making war upon you, He will give you the weapons with which to fight, to resist, and to win victory. If you are poor, He will enrich you with all sorts of riches for time and eternity. Let us open the door of His sacred and adorable Heart, and be wrapped about for an instant by the flames of His love, and we shall see what a God who loves us can do. O my God, who shall be able to comprehend?"
~St. John Vianney
