St. Peter Julian Eymard on Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament

Saint Peter Julian Eymard

Saint Peter Julian Eymard was ordained in 1834, for the Diocese of Grenoble, France. He became a parish priest and would join the Marists five years later. He promoted Eucharistic adoration throughout his life and founded a religious order of priest-adorers of the Eucharist, known as the Priests of the Blessed Sacrament.

Happy is the soul that knows how to find Jesus in the Eucharist, and the Eucharist in all things!
When we work hard, we must eat well. What a joy, that you can receive Holy Communion often! It's our life and support in this life - Receive Communion often, and Jesus will change you into himself.
How kind is our Sacramental Jesus! He welcomes you at any hour of the day or night. His Love never knows rest. He is always most gentle towards you. When you visit Him, He forgets your sins and speaks only of His joy, His tenderness, and His Love. By the reception He gives to you, one would think He has need of you to make Him happy.
The Eucharist is the life of the people. The Eucharist gives them a center of life. All can come together without the barriers of race or language in order to celebrate the feast days of the Church. It gives them a law of life, that of charity, of which it is the source; thus it forges between them a common bond, a Christian kinship.
Virgin Immaculate, perfect lover of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, we ask you to obtain for us the graces we need to become true adorers of our Eucharistic God. Grant us, we beg of you, to know Him better, to love Him more, and to center our lives around the Eucharist, that is, to make our whole life a constant prayer of adoration, thanksgiving, reparation, and petition to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Amen.

St. Peter Julian Eymard, who loved Christ devoutly, help us to do so as well..
