Today's Meditation on the Eucharist

"Who does not see that the hidden life of Nazareth is continued in the divine Host of the tabernacle, and that the Passion of the Man-God on Calvary is renewed in the Holy Sacrifice at every moment of the day and night and all over the world? Is not our Lord as meek and humble in His Sacrament as during His mortal life? Is He not always the Good Shepherd, the divine Consoler, our bosom Friend?"

(St. Peter Julian Eymard)

Loved the meditation on the Eucharist. I've been doing a nine day novena to the Holy Eucharist and this fits in well now on the 8th day. I did it to grow closer to Jesus, somehow I've been weaker and the temptation has been greater. I'm a little disappointed in myself. Although I realize that the closer you grow to Jesus the stronger the temptation and the deeper you do go into a relationship with Jesus.

I'm afraid the kidnapped child from the family in Italy has been killed:

Let us pray for Tommaso and his family.

The closer you get to Jesus, the more the devil will seek to tear you away. I've felt this.

But, don't worry. After awhile your faith becomes the strongest guardian in the world - even the devil cannot penetrate it.

Jesus will certainly not let you fall away but will forgive you and consistently call you back to him.

I'd really like to see a copy of that novena to the Holy Eucharist. Could you post one here in the comments?
