April 18 - Grace of Conviction


On April 18, during thanksgiving after Holy Mass, I was seized suddenly by a strong feeling of gratitude and love for Jesus, and so said to him: “What great thing could I do for you?”  And a sweet, peaceful, but strong and stirring thought made me happy to think of devoting myself to the service of the Most Blessed Sacrament, to ask permission to do so, to seek the means to support and form the great work of perpetual Adoration, to press for the establishment of a religious order of the Most Blessed Sacrament.  Isn’t that a beautiful thought, my daughter!  Isn’t it surprising, that since the foundation of holy Church, the Holy Eucharist hasn’t had its own religious body, its honor guard, its court, its family, like the other mysteries of our Lord, which have all had a religious body to honor them and preach about them?  It seemed to me that I was willing to make any sacrifice for Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
