St. Padre Pio: "Run to the Feet of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament"

"We must always have courage, and if some spiritual languor comes upon us, let us run to the feet of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and let us place ourselves in the midst of the heavenly perfumes, and we will undoubtedly regain our strength."

"Kneel down and render the tribute of your presence and devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Confide all your needs to him, along with those of others. Speak to him with filial abandonment, give free rein to your heart, and give him complete freedom to work in you as he thinks best."

~ St. Padre Pio ~

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests, and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.

In the spiritual life of Padre Pio, the most touching for me is his long prayers after celebrating of Holy Mass. That long time of prayer (about one and half of an hour) is the time of being Padre Pio's with his Love - with Jesus being in His human body with him.
As our Catholic Church teaches, it is very important to be with Jesus not only in the time of celebration of Holy Mass, but also in the time which comes immediately after this celebrating. Our Church teaches, but we do not know it and do not practice it. But our father Pio asks us to change our thinking and our practice of not-adoration in this special time when Jesus is in the most intimate relation with everybody who received Him in Holy Sacrament during Holy Mass. When the Holy Mass ends, every of us can be with Jesus who is in His body as true Man, God who loves by being with me as every man who loves and is in body near the person who is loved by him...
I translated from Polish to English some texts where this practice of Padre Pio is described. I want to find original Italian texts where this saint practice of Padre Pio is described. Do You know where they are?
If You want to read more about this practice of adoration immediately after Holy Mass, especially in the documents of our Church and saints of our church, You can see on the Internet website:
