Mutual attraction...

“The Blessed Sacrament is the magnet of souls. 
There is a mutual attraction between
Jesus and the souls of men. 
Mary drew Him down from heaven.  Our nature attracted Him
rather than the nature of angels.  Our misery caused Him to stoop to
our lowness.  Even our sins had a sort of attraction for the abundance
of His mercy and the predilection of His grace.  Our repentance wins
Him to us.  Our love makes earth a paradise to Him; and our souls
lure Him as gold lures the miser, with irresistible fascination.”

Fr Frederick Wm Faber
