|(St. Vincent Ferrer Parish, NYC)|
. . .Poor pitiable sinners, do not turn away from me. . . . Day and night, I am on the watch for you in the tabernacle. I will not reproach you. . . I will not cast your sins in your face.. . But I will wash them in My Blood and in My Wounds. No need to be afraid. . . . Come to Me. . . . If you but knew how dearly I love you.
And you, dear souls, why this coldness and indifference on your part? . . . Do I not know that family cares . . .household concerns .. .and the requirements of your position in life make continual calls upon you?
. . . But can not you spare a few minutes in which to come and prove your affection and your gratitude? Do not allow yourselves to be involved in useless and incessant cares, but spare a few moments to visit and receive this Prisoner of Love !
(Sister Josefa Menendez, The Way of Divine Love, as quoted by Father Florian Racini in Could You Not Watch With Me One Hour-How to Cultivate a Deeper Relationship with the Lord through Eucharistic Adoration)
