"My job is to inform not to convince." - St Bernadette
Fr Dustin Bain ~ Indianapolis, Indiana ~ USA
“The Eucharist bathes the tormented soul
in light and love.
Then the soul appreciates these words,
‘Come all you who are sick,
I will restore your health.'"
France ~ 1844-1879

Said of St Bernadette by a fellow Sister, Sr Dalias:
"The Holy Eucharist was the breath of her soul."
A tiny tot of four inquired of St Bernadette,
"You have seen the Blessed Virgin, Sister. Was she beautiful?"
"So beautiful," she replied, "that once you have seen her,
you would willingly die to see her again."
St Bernadette, pray for us!
Happy and Holy 88th Birthday,
dearest Pope Emeritus Benedict!
"Adore Him present in the Eucharist:
in fact, adoration must precede
our every activity and program,
that it may render us truly free
and that we may be given
the criteria for our action."
Pope Benedict XVI
