Sending messages... often...

Lord, open my lips.
- And my mouth will declare your praise
Invitatory Psalm


“Wherever I may be I will often think of 
Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.  
I will fix my thoughts on the holy Tabernacle – 
even when I happen to wake up at night  - 
adoring Him from where I am, 
calling to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, 
offering up to Him the action I am performing.

I will install one telegraph cable 
from my study to the Church, 
another from my bedroom, 
and a third from our refectory; 
and as often as I can, 
I will send messages of love 
to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

Venerable Andrew Beltrami (+1897) 
Salesian priest
His mother, upon entrusting him 
to the Salesian Novice Master said, 
"Make him a saint"
