My heart, a resting place...

 "I am a child of God through Baptism and 
my resemblance to Him has grown stronger through 
Holy Communion. May I never forget my last 
Communion and may my heart yearn for the next one." 
Mother Angelica

"Heavenly Father, when Your priest
holds up the host
and says "the Body of Christ"
let my soul bow in humble adoration
before the love and humility of Jesus.

Let my heart be
a pure resting place for Your Son.

I desire, dear Father, that the image of Jesus
grow brighter in my soul after every Communion.
At that tremendous moment God and I are one."
