With us always...

Sometimes dear Father (Father Germano -ed) I tremble and turn bright red when I think of how impure I am when I receive Jesus (in Communion -ed) who is the essence of Purity.  And it is surely because of this impurity that beside the fire of Jesus I am colder and colder.  But Jesus, my dear Jesus, loves me even this way, and continuously lets Himself be felt in my soul. I have only one good thing, dear Father, and it is good intentions. At least I think I have these. And, since Jesus tells me that this greatly helps one who is weak and poor like I am, so I hope these good intentions at least will be pleasing to one who is strong and great like Jesus."  ~  St Gemma Galgani
