Eucharistic Reflection - Proofs of Love

(Image source: Wikimedia Commons)

"Souls dedicated to Perpetual Adoration, who during the hours spent before the Sacred Host would like to imitate at least from afar the fervor of those who adore in heaven, be neither surprised nor scandalized by those weaknesses: fatigue, drowsiness, dryness of spirit, and that 'I can't' feeling. 

If you are tempted to see in it all a sign of deficient love, you are mistaken. Much to the contrary, your displeasure at them and your battle against them are proofs of love because they are acts of sacrifice, and suffering is the proof and nourishment of love."

(From The Holy Eucharist - Father Jose Guadalupe Trevino)
