Fidelity to the Word
Our Lord and His Holy Apostles at the Last Supper

A blog dedicated to Christ Jesus our Lord and His True Presence in the Holy Mystery of the Eucharist

But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow hath filled your heart. But I tell you the truth: it is expedient to you that I go: for if I go not, the Paraclete will not come to you: but if I go, I will send Him to you.

John 16:6-7

How boundless, O Jesus, is Thy Love!

Thou hast prepared for me,
of Thy most precious Body and Blood,
a divine Banquet,
wherein Thou dost give Thyself to me without reserve.
What hath urged Thee to this excess of love?
Nothing but Thine own most Loving Heart.
O adorable Heart of Jesus,
Furnace of divine Love,
receive my soul into the wounds of Thy most sacred Passion,
that in this school of charity
I may learn to make a return of love
to that God who hath given me such wonderful proofs of His Love.


(from Manual of Prayers, Third Plenary Council of Baltimore)
