"It is one thing to love God and another thing actually
to feel the joy of His presence." - Servant of God Elisabeth Leseur
"When I was still a child" - she testified - "and before I was old enough to receive Jesus in Communion, I used to rush to the front door to greet my mother when she returned from
There I stood on tiptoe to reach up to her and cried, 'I want God too!' Mass.
My mother would bend down and softly breathe on my lips; I immediately left her, and placing my hands across my chest, full of joy and faith, jumping for joy I would keep repeating: 'I have received God too! I have received God too!' "
Blessed Maria Candida of the Eucharist, O.C.D (1884-1949)
