Awakening the drowsy soul...

"When St Francis Borgia was sick at Ebora, it was necessary for the physicians to arouse him repeatedly from a stupor into which he constantly relapsed.  The Blessed Sacrament was brought to him.  Immediately he awoke and remained bright and cheerful without any further symptoms of drowsiness. 

Thus, when your heart, lost in temporal affairs and anxieties, is about to slumber and grow cold in the love of God, awaken it through the Blessed Sacrament.  Nourish a great devotion toward this sublime Mystery.  It will bear magnificent fruits, richest blessings. 

If you are one of the zealous adorers of the Holy Eucharist, you may indeed be called a specially privileged soul. "

~ Fr Lukas Etlin, O.S.B.
