St. Bruno, Founder of the Carthusian Order: Visiting a Carthusian Monastery

“I believe the sacraments which the Church believeth, and in particular that the bread and wine consecrated on the altar are the true Body of our Lord Jesus Christ; His true Flesh, and His true Blood, which we receive for the remission of our sins, and in the hope of eternal life.”

~ Saint Bruno ~
Quote and more information from here.

"Our life is like that woman who seemingly wastes oil on the feet of Jesus.  When you love you can also do something foolish; the most beautiful and significant follies are done for love."

" We give our life, we waste it for Jesus, for God, because we felt He called us.  It's a calling of love and we reply with love; but with this waste, breaking the vase as the Scriptures say, the perfume is spread in all the house.  I think the perfume of our life spreads in all the Church, in all the world."

~ Words of two Carthusians, from  video 4 ~

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.
