Perfecting the soul's love

        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 !
