The nectar and scent of my soul

The Eucharist by Jan van Kessel

Concepcion Cabrera de Armida, Servant of God, on the Eucharist…

"He is my only thought, my memory, my Paradise, my Heaven on earth!  He is my Eucharist, my ideal, my very breath, my good and my drink!  He is melodious music to me, sweetness itself, the nectar and scent of my soul, my strength, my delight, my measure, my desire! 

He calls forth my love in deifying me.  He gives me life while taking it away.  He sets my heart on fire, inflaming it with His glances... His beauty… His smiles… His love."
