And do not forget!  crucifix

'If you practice the holy exercise of Spiritual Communion a good many times each day, within a month you will see yourself completely changed.'

St. Leonard of Port Maurice


I remember when you  posted this quote earlier, I printed out the prayer and for a while I used to remember to say it; now it it is just in my hand bag, I hardly ever remember to say it. So much for perseverance  Sad

That quote really rings a bell for me. I wish I could live in the sanctuary.

You can always say the prayer ten times in the next hour odhiambo! To make a new beginning!  crucifix

Bless you Shin!

"When you have received Him, stir up your heart to do Him homage; speak to Him about your spiritual life, gazing upon Him in your soul where He is present for your happiness; welcome Him as warmly as possible, and behave outwardly in such a way that your actions may give proof to all of His Presence."

 A member over at CAF started a thread "I don't get that much out of communion" and wanted to know what experiences others have.
I posted the above quote of Saint Francis de Sales. I hope it helped. I think the benefits we get from Sacraments depends very much on our inner preparedness. If we have faith, Jesus works His miracles in us; without that faith, His hands are as good as tied. Sad

“Do you want our Lord to give you many graces? Visit him often. Do you want him to give you few graces? Visit him seldom. Visits to the Blessed Sacrament are powerful and indispensable means of overcoming the attacks of the devil. Make frequent visits to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and the devil will be powerless against you.”

This sounds like a thread topic to start! Cheesy

'Fly, as a pest, that self-satisfaction which begets vanity and inspires you with an esteem of yourself; it comes from the devil.

Thank the Lord that you have the grace to recognize and reject it.

Humility of heart, self-contempt, recourse to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the impregnable fortress to which we should ever fly for help -- these are the chief means of guarding against illusion.

Those sentiments which enlighten your mind and inflame your will ought, after what you have told me, to be suspected if they occasion you one particle of self-complacency. You should, therefore, banish those imaginations and place yourself in the presence of God, endeavoring with a lively faith to conceive a high idea of the Divine Majesty, that you may the more effectually humble yourself before Him. If the, devil assail you, think of your sins and miseries; do not permit yourself to go further, but reflect on your own nothingness : you will thus baffle the ruses of the demon. Be faithful to this advice.'

St. Paul of the Cross
