To the Blessed Sacrament
Say the preliminary prayer, MY LORD JESUS CHRIST, etc.
Loving souls can find no greater delight than to be in the company of
those whom they love. If we, then, love Jesus Christ much, behold we
are now in His Presence. Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament sees us and
shall we, then, say nothing to Him? Let us console ourselves in His
company; let us rejoice in His glory, and in the love which so many
enamoured souls bear Him in the Most Holy Sacrament. Let us desire that
all should love Jesus in the Holy Sacrament, and consecrate their
hearts to Him; at least let us consecrate all our affections to Him. He
should be all our love and our whole desire. Father Salesius, of the
Society of Jesus, felt consolation in only
speaking of the Most Blessed Sacrament; he could never visit it enough.
When called to the parlor, on returning to his room, when going about
the house, he always profited by these occasions to repeat his visits
to his beloved Lord; so much so, that it was remarked that scarcely
an hour of the day passed without his visiting Him. At length he
obtained the favor to die by the hands of heretics while defending the
truth of the Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
Oh, had I but the happiness to die for so noble a cause as the defence
of this Sacrament, in which, O most amiable Jesus, Thou hast taught
us the tenderness of the love which Thou bearest us! But since, my
Lord, Thou workest so many miracles in this Sacrament, work this one
also: draw my entire self to Thee. Thou indeed desirest that I should
be all Thine, and Thou dost also indeed deserve that I should be so.
Give me the strength to love Thee with all the affection of my soul.
Give the goods of this world to whomsoever Thou willest. I renounce
them all: I sigh after and desire Thy love alone; this alone do I now
and will always seek. I love Thee, my Jesus; grant me the grace always
to love Thee, and grant me this alone.
. My Jesus, when shall I really love Thee?
