30 Mar

“Let us remember that one of the principal advantages of the Mass is that it draws upon us every morning innumerable blessings.

Hearken to Jesus Christ raising His voice as in the time of His mortal life: ‘If any of you thirst, let Him come to Me and drink.’ Let us go, then, with confidence to the throne of grace, which is the altar; we shall find there the treasures of the mercy of Jesus Christ, and of the succour which He holds in reserve for an opportune moment. Present on the altar as on the cross, He is no less powerful, kind and generous there.

‘Lead me to Mass, and I will see,’ said a little blind child, afterwards the venerable M. Allemand of Marseilles. He was brought there, and recovered his sight.”
– Laverty&Sons (eds), 1905
