Keep yourselves in God's love ... Jude 21a
"The God of the Eucharist
conceals Himself in order to be desired,
veils Himself in order to become
an object of contemplation;
He wraps Himself in mystery in order to
spur on and perfect the soul's love."
St. Peter Julian Eymard
France ~ 1811-1868
Founder of Congregation of
Priests of the Blessed Sacrament (1856)
Apostle of the Eucharist
FEAST DAY- August 2
Happy and Holy 101st Birthday, Sr Paulina BeNoot,
Contemplative Good Shepherd Sister!
(She's sharp as a tack - and attributes her vocation to a
one-time priest in Detroit - Fr Solanus Casey!)
“Society will again someday become Christian won to Jesus Christ
by the apostolate of Eucharistic Prayer.” ~ St Peter Julian Eymard
On his deathbed St Peter Julian Eymard gave this reply to a religious who requested a final point for reflection: "I have nothing more to tell you. You already have the Eucharist. What more do you want?"
St Peter Julian Eymard, pray for us !
