St. Peter Julian Eymard: The Happiness and Peace of Eucharistic Souls

"The spirit of Eucharistic love
will make you refer everything to the Holy Eucharist,
for the Eucharist is the summary of all marvels.
It is the permanent mystery in which we find all others...
God is immense, the universe is filled with God's presence,
but the Eucharistic soul
prefers to search and find God where He is sacramentally.
Just as the eagles assemble where the body is,
so also Eucharistic souls
are attracted instinctively, easily, and habitually to the Holy Eucharist.
Therein is their happiness, their peace;
there they find a supernatural knowledge of all things."

~ St. Peter Julian Eymard ~

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.
