Eucharistic Reflection - Have You Not Failed?



“O Lover of men, so lonely, so forsaken, if Your object in staying with us day and night was to win our love, have You not failed?

 Has it been worth Your while to work miracle after miracle to produce Your Real Presence upon the altar? Have I made it worth Your while to be there for me? Jesus, dear Jesus, I bury my face in my hands; I know of no heart more ungrateful, more callous than my own. I have been miserably unmindful of Your Presence here for me. I have let self, pleasure, troubles even – anything and everything furnish an excuse for keeping away from You and neglecting You in that sacramental life which is lived here for me.”

(Mother Mary Loyola from Coram Sanctissimo – Before The Most Holy)
