HOW COULD YOU LEAVE HIM SO MUCH ALONE!
Our Lord Jesus Christ lives neglected, lonely and unappreciated in so many of His Tabernacle Homes! Empty benches ~ shadowy aisles are His only company through many long hours. Elsewhere, there is plenty of cheer, happy gathering, pleasant conversations, but HE ~
The Fairest of the Sons of Men,
Is His company tedious? … The FAULT is yours. Have you treated with Him as a Human Person? Have you realized His special interest in YOU individually, and in every tiny detail of Your life? Have you understood that Your company is never tedious to Him? Have you considered the great NEED you have of Him?
“Come to Me all you who labor and are burdened and I will refresh you.” Mt.11-28
YOU ARE DEAR TO HIM!
He wants YOU! He wants you OFTEN to come and talk heart to heart with Him, freely and spontaneously …
Your secrets, plans, ambitions,
Shut out the things around you and BE ALONE with Him for a little while each day. Look at HIM with the eyes of faith. Touch HIM as did the sick of Galilee. Listen to HIM, for His Grace speaks to you in the depths of your soul. You will notice the benefit this contact with JESUS will bring into your life.
PUT YOURSELF OUT TO VISIT HIM!
It is worth a little inconvenience ~ YES, the greatest inconvenience. Our dear Lord is never outdone in generosity. Your life will be happier and more abundantly blessed with the graces He will bestow upon you.
THE CHILD OF MARY ASSOCIATION
In you, Her children, Our Blessed Mother can multiply herself as many times as there are Tabernacles, placing you as sentinel at the foot of the Cross before the forgotten Jesus: Prisoner of Love in an abandoned Tabernacle, on a lonely Altar, somewhere in the world. The Child of Mary Association is entirely spiritual and interior. There is no registration, no dues, no meetings and no ceremony of admission. Having made your intention of being enrolled and choosing an abandoned and neglected Tabernacle, you remain there always in spirit, repairing all the outrages Jesus has to suffer.
The number and names of the associates are known to God alone! If, today, each of us will offer to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, his every prayer, and every trial and contradiction of the duties of his state in life, not a single Tabernacle in the world will fail to be “A TRUE HOME” for Jesus upon earth and, for us, a foretaste of Heaven!
“WILL YOU NOT WATCH ONE HOUR WITH ME!”
Let us hear the plaintive cry of our suffering Savior. The Church desires the faithful, when present at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, to be there not at strangers or silent spectators but, actively, through the hands of the priest and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, offering themselves to God.
After the Holy Mass, how many long hours does the sanctuary suffer abandonment! One of the great sorrows of Our Eucharistic King is that “He is not being offered”. Each time that soul takes possession, so to speak, of Jesus hidden in the Tabernacle and offers Him thus to His Holy Father, an infinite glory is rendered to the Adorable Trinity. When the Church is empty and there is no one to render this offering of adoration, God the Father is keenly afflicted. When exactly was the last time you spent an hour of adoration in the Eucharistic presence of Our Blessed Lord in His vigil of Love for the souls of mankind? POOR JESUS!
We live in an Age where man tends to proud worship his own brain and intellect, rather than humbly accepting the simple, yet profound realities of the faith… Dogma, Doctrine and Devotion.
The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be the Eucharistic reign of Her Divine Son, Jesus, throughout the whole world!
TAKE YOUR STAND WITH MARY AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS!
