Perfumes of strength...

  "Protected, covered and defended by the Presence of this dear Lord,
let us stand before Him in the Holy Eucharist
and pray with the humility of the creature
and the confidence and freedom of the child." - St Padre Pio

"We must always have courage,
and if some spiritual languor comes upon us,
let us run to the feet of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament,
and let us place ourselves
in the midst of the heavenly perfumes,
and we will undoubtedly regain our strength."

St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina
Priest, Stigmatist, Mystic

When I am close to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, 
I feel as if my heart is bursting out of my chest.” ~ St Padre Pio
