QOTD: Devotion to the Most Blessed Sacrament – I

“We must never depart from the holy ciborium or, rather, from the Heart of Jesus the Host. There we receive the grace of all His mysteries, because there do they all come together in the Most Holy Sacrament. There I find the mystery of the birth of Jesus. In short, we have there the mystery of His circumcision, and of the Epiphany, which is the manifestation of Jesus Christ, we have there His baptism, His hidden life, his conversation. In a word [the Most Holy Sacrament] contains all the mysteries. This august Sacrament is what is most divine in all that  the Church possesses. O divine Jesus, come Yourself to instruct us in the truths of Your adorable mysteries, or rather, remain where You are, and draw our hearts to You.” -Mother Mectilde of the Blessed Sacrament (1614-1698), Foundress of the Benedictines of the Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in Paris (this was the first society formally organized for the Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament)
