The Way of Divine Love...

"Our mission as Christians is to conform ourselves 
evermore to Jesus as the model of our lives."  - Pope Francis

The Blessed Sacrament is the invention of love. 
It is life and fortitude for souls, a remedy for every fault,
and a viaticum for the last passage from time and eternity. 

In it sinners recover life for their souls;
tepid souls, true warmth;
 fervent souls, tranquility and satisfaction of every longing
saintly souls, wings to fly towards perfection
pure souls, sweet honey and rarest sustenance."

The Way of Divine Love, Words of Our Lord to Sr Josefa Menendez

ORDAINED to the Holy Priesthood of Jesus Christ

Oh, day of Love Divine, all loves excelling!
An Old German saying:
It is worth wearing out a pair of shoes to walk
to receive a priest's First Blessing!
