BECOME attached in fervor to the devotion to the divine Blood which softens every heart, and do not fail to turn frequently to the most holy Mary Immaculate under whose protection it is most helpful to remain. - St. Gaspar de Buffalo
"Behold, I make all things new." Each day, our beloved Lord invites us to begin anew. Each day, we are given the opportunity to serve Him more faithfully, to resemble Him more closely.
The Saviour's Heart invites us to return to the Father's love, which is the source of every authentic love: "In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins" (1 Jn 4:10). Jesus ceaselessly receives from the Father, rich in mercy and compassion, the love which he lavishes upon human beings (cf. Eph 2:4; Jas 5:11). His Heart particularly reveals the generosity of God towards sinners. God's reaction to sin is not to lessen his love, but to expand it into a flow of mercy which becomes the initiative of the Redemption.
“…All the mysteries were lived by Jesus for us, in order to grant us to be, some day, with him where He is by right – in the glory of His Father. Yes, each of us can say with St. Paul: Christ ‘loved me and have Himself up for me.’ And His immolation on the cross was not only the crowning point of the mysteries of His earthly life. It was for me, because He loved me, that He accomplished everything.” - Blessed Columba Marmion
The Son of God has come down upon the earth, in order to restore man to Life; and yet, here we have this creature of death daring to summon his Divine Benefactor before a human tribunal, and condemning him to Death! And Jesus is silent! - Dom Gueranger
CAN we love someone we do not even know? Can we love deeply someone we know only vaguely? Why is Jesus, the adorable, eternal and incarnate Wisdom loved so little if not because he is either too little known or not known at all? - St. Louis Marie de Montfort
APRIL, the first full month of the joyful season of spring, is devoted to the honor of Jesus present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
Strengthen in our minds, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the mysteries of the true faith; that we who confess Him who was conceived of a Virgin to be true God and man, may deserve by the power of His saving resurrection to attain to eternal happiness.
The saints, friends of God and our friends, traveled this earthly journey before us and are ever ready to help us on our path to heaven.
Meménto homo, + quia pulvis es, et in púlverim revertéris.
Remember, man, + that thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return.
