Eucharist Quote: St. Alphonsus Liguori

"My Jesus, I believe that Thou art truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love Thee above all things, and I desire to possess Thee within my soul.

Virtue Quote: Thomas a’ Kempis

Virtue Quote: St. Louis de Montfort

Eucharist Quote: St. Peter Julian Eymard

"True, God is everywhere, but we have need for Him to draw near to us under sensible signs, and this is what He does in the Blessed Sacrament. Think, then, that He is there. That Presence is sweeter, is recalled more easily than the presence of the invisible, the impalpable Divinity. It is less easily [...]
