Keeping vigil...

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,
may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide
and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love
that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled
to the measure of all the fullness of God. – Eph 3: 17b-19


St Josemaria Escriva recommended priests to keep the Blessed Sacrament company as much as they could. He wanted all of them to increase their devotion to the Eucharist, pointing out to them:

“Don’t do it for your parishioners to see, but don’t worry if they do see you. If you are centered on our Lord, and people notice how you love Him, they’ll ask you why, and then you can tell them about this love that should fill your whole life.”
