'Pray twenty-four hours every day - that is, perform all your actions with heart and mind raised to God, holding yourself in interior solitude, and reposing in God in pure faith.'

'But, for one who desires to approach God, it is necessary to become the enemy of His enemies; and, as I find nothing that is worse than myself, nor that is more inimical to Him, I am compelled to hold myself in more aversion than anything else whatever, and will even despise myself and count it to be worthless. And, on the other hand, I will detach my spirit from all the goods of both this world and the other, which I will henceforth regard as if they had no existence. I have implored God neither to suffer me to rejoice interiorly nor to grieve over any created thing, so that I may never be seen to shed a single tear. And I have begged Him to take away from me the freedom of my will, so that I may no longer do what pleases me, but only what is according to His pleasure: all these things I have obtained from his clemency.'

The first International Eucharistic Congress owed its inspiration to Bishop Louis Gaston de Segur. He was a French bishop.   
In 1881 he organized the Eucharistic Congress in Lille, France which was approved by Pope Leo XIII.

Today is the Memorial according to Foley of both St Cornelius (d253) and St Cyprian (d258).  I found several other posts here about individuals named Cornelius, but am uncertain how and whether to copy them.  Cornelius' election to succeed Pope Fabian, who was killed in persecution ordered by Emperor Decian, was delayed 14 months, and when Cornelius went into hiding to escape persecution he was confronted with the first antipope, Novatus.  A synod of bishops condemned Novatianism and upheld Cornelius in 251, but the Pope was exiled and died under persecution renewed by Gallus in 253.  St Cornelius, please pray us.

On 9/13 I stopped my Kersten meditation (mentioned elsewhere), and began the Sodality book, which is very different.  I find myself reluctant to write notes on meditation, and or mental prayer, even in my journals, probably because my mind is quite far from the cloud of unknowing.  I do have a strong joy from my consistent effort at meditation, even though I switched methods, and I do sometimes feel the wonderful sense of God's Presence and that He is pleased sometimes with my effort.

Meditation on the Passion and Resurrection:
Good Mother, Mary, you watched the Light of the world die in darkness. Saint John the Beloved took you into his home and comforted your sorrow in the shadow of the Cross. As Guardian of the Holy Virgin, Saint John the Apostle suffered greatly seeing firsthand the death of the Master, Jesus Christ and the sorrow that accompanied the Virgin's mourning. Sweetest Lord Jesus, you beheld the tears of anguish of Mary Thy Mother with greater distress than any other. The Holy Mother of the Lord became the Mother of the martyred Messiah and the handmaiden of the Lord became the Widow of the Lord. Yet three days in the tomb Christ's body lay, Friday Night, all of Saturday and by first light of Sunday, the True Light had risen from the dead. Yet in this great mystery, Thy Apostles and Thy sorrowful Mother did weep and mourn and lament. And it was the Father's Spirit that raised up the Savior from death and made immortal the mortal nature of Christ, having put on glory and dispelling every manner of sorrow, the Lord put to flight the sadness and weeping of His Virgin Mother and banished the cowardice of His fearful disciples.
