Barefoot through fire... with JOY...

  "Who we love shapes what we become." - St Clare of Assisi

When St Margaret Mary Alacoque left the world 
and consecrated herself to God in the cloister, 
she made a private vow and wrote in her blood,
"All for the Eucharist,
nothing for me."
It is useless to attempt to describe 
the Saint's burning love for the Eucharist.
When she was not able to receive Holy Communion, 
she broke out in ardent expressions of love like these:

"I have such a desire for Holy Communion that if
I had to walk barefoot along a path of fire to obtain It,
I would do so with unspeakable joy."
Excerpt from Jesus, Our Eucharistic Love 
Fr Stefano Manelli
