"I want God too!"


"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 Mass. There I stood on tiptoe to reach up to her and cried, 'I want God too!'

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)


  1. How beautiful I am deeply touched.

  2. Greetings, Nancy ! - As a friend wrote to me today in regard to the quote, "She became a blessed on the seeds of longing. God uses everything." Indeed - everything toward Him... On another note, Nancy - I was at Our Lady of the Cenacle in Florida in Feb for an extended retreat - and noticed on a visit to your blog that you also are familiar with this holy retreat center. Small world.
