The paschal sacrament brings together in unity of
faith those physically separated from each other.
Brethren, how fine a thing is to move from
festival to festival, from prayer to prayer, from holy
day to holy day. The time is now at hand when we
enter in a new beginning: the proclamation of the
blessed Passover, in which the Lord was sacrificed.
We feed on the food of life, we constantly refresh
our souls with his precious blood, as from a fountain.
Yet we are always thirsting, burning to be satisfied. But
he himself is present for those who thirst an din his goodness invites them to the feast day. Our Savior repeats his
words: If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.
He quenched the thirst not only of those
who came to him then. Whenever anyone seeks him
he is freely admitted to the presence of the Savior.
The grace of the feast is not restricted to one occasion. Its rays of glory never set. It is always at hand
to enlighten the mind of those whose minds have
been enlightened and who meditate day and night on
the holy Scriptures, like the one who is called
blessed in the holy psalm: Blessed is the man who
has not followed the counsel of the wicked, or stood
where sinners stand, or sat in the seat of the scornful. But whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and
who meditates on his law day and night.
Moreover, my friends, the God who first established this feast for us allows us to celebrate it
each year. He who gave up his Son to death for our
salvation, from the same motive gives us this feast,
as he brings us together to form one assembly, uniting us all in spirit in every place, allowing us to pray
together an to offer common thanksgiving, as is our
duty on the feast. Such is the wonder of his love: he
gathers to this feast those who are apart, and brings
together in unity of faith those who may be physically separated from each other.

El sacramento pascual nos lleva a la unidad en fe
por los que están físicamente apartados el uno al
Hermanos, que cosa tan fina el moverse de
festival a festival, de oración a oración, de día santo
a día santo. Ah llegado la hora de entrar a nuevo comienzo: la proclamación de la Pascua bendita, en la
cual el Señor fue sacrificado. Nos alimentamos de la
comida de la vida, constantemente refrescamos
nuestras almas con su preciosa sangre, como de una
fuente. Sin embargo siempre tenemos sed, con la
necesidad de ser saciada. Pero el mismo esta presente para aquellos que tienen sed y en su bondad los
invita al banquete. Nuestro Salvador repite sus palabras: Si alguien tiene sed, que venga a mi y yo le
daré de beber.
El sacio la sed no solo de los que fueron a el
en aquel entonces. Cuando alguien lo busca el esta
en presencia de el Salvador. La gracia del banquete
no esta limitado a una sola ocasión. Los rayos de su
gloria nunca se desvanecen. Siempre esta a la mano
para iluminar la mente de aquellos que lo deseen .
Su poder siempre esta ahí para quienes mentes a iluminado y que meditan día y noche las Sagradas escrituras, como aquel que es bendito en los salmos:
Bendito el hombre que no sigue el consejo del maligno, o se paro donde están los pecadores, o sentado en la silla los que menosprecian, si no su alegría
esta en la ley del Señor, y con quien medita su ley
día y noche.
Además, mis amigos, el Dios que estableció
este banquete para nosotros nos permite celebrarlo
cada año. El que dio a su Hijo a la muerte por nuestra salvación, por el mismo motivo nos da este banquete, que se conmemora cada año. Este banquete
nos guía por medio de las pruebas que tenemos en
este mundo. Ahora Dios nos da la felicidad de la
salvación que brilla de este banquete, al unirnos para
formar una asamblea, uniéndonos en espíritu, permitiéndonos orar juntos y dar gracias, es nuestro deber
en este banquete. Tanto es la maravilla de su amor:
el nos lleva a la unidad en fe por los que están físicamente apartados el uno al otro.

Over 100 Benefits of Eucharistic Adoration
37. I understand that, each time we contemplate with desire
and devotion the Host in which is hidden Christ’s Eucharistic Body, we increase our merits in heaven and
secure special joys to be ours later in the beatific vision
of God. (St. Gertrude).
38. The Eucharist bathes the tormented soul in light and
love. Then the soul appreciates these words, ‘Come all
you who are sick, I will restore your health’. (St Bernadette Soubirous)
39. The Holy Hour becomes like an oxygen tank to revive
the breath of the Holy Spirit in the midst of the foul and
fetid atmosphere of the world. (Archbishop Fulton
