"I need nothing but
God, and to lose myself in the heart of Jesus."
"What a weakness it is to love Jesus Christ only
when He caresses us, and to be cold immediately
once He afflicts us. This is not true love.
Those who love thus, love themselves too much to
love God with all their heart."
"The Divine Heart is an ocean full of all good
things, wherein poor souls can cast all their
needs; it is an ocean full of joy to drown all
our sadness, an ocean of humility to drown our
folly, an ocean of mercy to those in distress,
an ocean of love in which to submerge our
"Let every knee bend before Thee, O greatness of
my God, so supremely humbled in the Sacred Host.
May every heart love Thee, every spirit adore
Thee and every will be subject to Thee!"
"One cannot love without suffering. He [Jesus]
showed us this very clearly upon the cross,
where He was consumed for love of us. And it is
still the same every day in the Blessed
Sacrament of the Altar... Since love makes
lovers one in likeness, if we love, let us model
our lives on His."
"Love keeps Him there [in the Blessed Sacrament]
as a victim completely and perpetually delivered
over to sacrifice for the glory of the Father
and for our salvation. Unite yourself with Him,
then, in all that you do. Refer everything to
His glory. Set up your abode in this loving
Heart of Jesus and you will there find lasting
peace and the strength both to bring to fruition
all the good desires He inspires in you, and to
avoid every deliberate fault. Place in this
Heart all your sufferings and difficulties.
Everything that comes from the Sacred Heart is
sweet. He changes everything into love."
"Oh, how fortunate you shall be to be able to
receive every day this divine Sacrament, to hold
this God of Love in your hands and place Him in
your own heart! I desire but this one grace, and
long to be consumed like a burning candle in His
holy Presence every moment of the life that
remains to me. For that I would be willing, I
think, to suffer all the pains imaginable till
judgment day, if only I should not have to leave
His sacred presence. My only motive would be to
be consumed in honoring Him and to acknowledge
the burning love He shows us in this wonderful
Sacrament. Here His love holds Him captive till
the end of time. It is of this one can truly
say, "Love triumphs, love enjoys/ Love finds in
God its joys!"
"In order to be like You, who are always alone
in the Blessed Sacrament, I shall love solitude
and try to converse with You as much as
possible. Grant that my mind may not seek to
know anything but You, that my heart may have no
longings or desires but to love You. When I am
obliged to take some comfort, I shall take care
to see that it be pleasing to Your Heart. In my
conversations, O divine Word, I shall consecrate
all my words to You so that You will not permit
me to pronounce a single one which is not for
Your glory.... When I am thirsty, I shall endure
it in honor of the thirst You endured for the
salvation of souls.... If by chance, I commit
some fault, I shall humble myself, and then take
the opposite virtue from Your Heart, offering it
to the eternal Father in expiation for my
failure. All this I intend to do, O Eucharistic
Jesus, to unite myself to You in every action of
"All for the Eucharist; nothing for me."
Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, and our dear
Mother! O all ye holy angels, who, by your
adoration in our churches, make up for the
little love which your God and our Saviour
receives from men, obtain for us the grace to
comprehend a little the love of Jesus Christ in
the Most Holy Sacrament."
