The Little Book of the
of the saints, Brightness of the everlasting city of peace. Come; for Thee have I wished. Come and kindle Thy love in me.
Mary, my Mother, Jesus can only be received at thy hands; from thy hands I receive thy Son and thy God.
Beg of Him for me that I may have at least some little of thy deep humility, thy fervent love, thy strong desire.
AFTER HOLY COMMUNION.
After you have received the Blessed Sacrament, take great care lest you spoil all by a want of gratitude, and so by your heedlessness lose the fruits of a good Communion.
Be not in a hurry to return to the things and thoughts of this world. The very God has come to you, and dwells within you. Pause and be silent. Spend at least ten minutes or a quarter of an hour in thanksgiving.
