Pastor's weekly letter

7-6-20

            On February 3, 1938, St. Faustina wrote this poem about Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament:

O Everlasting Love, Jesus, who have enclosed Yourself in the Host,

And there in hide Your divinity and conceal Your beauty,

You do this in order to give Yourself, whole and entire to my soul

And in order not to terrify it with Your greatness.

O everlasting Love, Jesus, who have shrouded Yourself with bread,

Eternal light, incomprehensible Fountain of joy and happiness,

Because You want to be heaven on earth to me,

That indeed You are, when Your love, O God, Imparts itself to me.

            These are indescribably beautiful words.  St. Faustina is describing what Jesus truly present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity has done for her during adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

            We are blessed because we have Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at St. Cecilia’s during the day and night time hours. I cannot begin to tell you what Jesus has done for me through the years as a result of spending time with Him truly present. You too can choose an hour each week. Jesus famously said this to His disciples during His agony in the garden, “Could you not watch with me one hour?” (Matthew 26:40) Jesus is now asking you this same question.           

            You too can watch with Jesus one hour each week in adoration. If you chose an hour to be with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, I promise you your life will change. Jesus will speak tenderly to your heart. You will discover peace that cannot be described and the world cannot give. To choose an hour please contact Marg Noecker at mnoecker@live.com There are some hours that no one has chosen but All hours are available to choose from.

            O Everlasting Love, Jesus, who have enclosed Yourself in the Host,

And there in hide Your divinity and conceal Your beauty,

You do this in order to give Yourself, whole and entire to my soul

And in order not to terrify it with Your greatness.

O everlasting Love, Jesus, who have shrouded Yourself with bread,

Eternal light, incomprehensible Fountain of joy and happiness,

Because You want to be heaven on earth to me,

That indeed You are, when Your love, O God, Imparts itself to me.

 

Sincerely,
