"Without doubt, the Lord grants all the favors
which are asked of Him in Mass,
provided they be those fitting for us..." St Jerome
"Take my advice,
and in every Mass ask God to make you a great saint.
Does this seem too much? It is not too much.
Is it not our good Master Who protests in the holy Gospel that,
for a cup of cool water given out of love of Him,
He will, in return, give paradise?
How, then, while offering to God
the blood of His most blessed Son,
should He not give you a hundred heavens,
were there so many?...
O blessed Mass!
Expand yet more and more your heart,
and ask great things of Him,
with the reflection that you ask of a God
Who does not grow poor by giving, and, therefore,
the more you petition for, the more you will obtain."
St Leonard of Port Maurice
