He made her heart His...

 ...the LORD is my portion ... He is good to those 
whose hope is in Him...  Lamentations 3:24, 25

"Christ Jesus had stolen the heart of Rita –
He alone possessed it. He made her heart His heart;
and under the white veils of the Eucharist He was for her soul,
as He is for all loving hearts, heaven upon earth.

 How sweet is the moment
in which poor humanity, wearied and afflicted, may 
remain alone, with Jesus alone, in the Sacrament of Love;
for there the Lord, with His flaming heart open, calls 
unto all, 'You that are burdened and heavy laden, 
come unto Me and I will refresh you.' "
