Poem : My Soul Is Fed

Soul Food is Love

I am joined to Christ
In the Mass

The mystery of union
In Him, through Him, with Him
In the unity of the Holy Spirit

Transcending Mortal Life
To partake in spiritual union
My soul is fed

Mass illumines me
Joins me to Christ’s Heart

By assimilating His body and blood
I am bonded to His soul and divinity

Is there a better way
Than the Mass?

Bread and Wine
Become Christ
By the power of God

Through the sacraments
Of the Church
And Holy Priesthood.

Christ is the new manna
My bread from Heaven
I shall eat and live!

The arc of the covenant laws
Shattered by Christ at the Cross,

Divine and human nature united
By Mary’s Fiat to become
The new arc and deliver
The very son of God

He is The Way,
The Truth, The Life
No one comes to the Father
Except through HIM.

The following remarkable incident will serve to illustrate what has just been said and to kindle in the reader greater devotion toward Holy Mass.

We read in the life of St. John of Facundo, a noted member of the Augustinian Order, that he never on any account omitted saying Mass, and in fact, urged by his great longing to offer the Holy Sacrifice and receive Our Lord, he said it every morning at the earliest hour possible. He was, however, so slow in celebrating that the server used to go away and leave him at the altar, and at last no one could be found to serve his Mass.

The Saint then went to the prior, and entreated him to order the brothers to do so. But the prior spoke sharply to him, saying, “Why do you give the brothers so much trouble by being so long over your Mass? I shall rather enjoin upon you henceforth to say Mass like other priests.” John did as he was commanded, but obedience cost him so much that he went again to the prior and, throwing himself at his feet, begged him to withdraw his command.

The prior would not consent to do this until John had confided to him in Confession the reasons which made it impossible for him to say Mass more quickly. Having heard them, he no longer hesitated to tell the brothers that they must serve Father John’s Mass, even though their patience was somewhat taxed.

It is certain that Christ frequently manifests Himself visibly to this father, speaking with him as one speaks to a friend, and showing him His five sacred wounds, from which proceeds a light of exceeding brightness, which, shed upon the Saint, quickens both body and soul, so that he experiences no need of earthly nourishment.

He also beholds the Body of Christ shining like the sun at noonday and perceives its infinite beauty and glory. Such are the lofty and divine things he is privileged to know, mysteries which it is not given to man to fathom, much less to utter.

Since I have thus been made aware of the immense benefits accruing to mankind by the celebrating or assisting at Mass, I have made a firm resolution never to omit saying or hearing Mass and to do my utmost to induce others to do the same.” From these noteworthy words which the prior uttered we see clearly that solemn mysteries are contained in the Holy Mass and we ought to reverence it most profoundly.

Prayer Before The Blessed Sacrament

The Blessed Sacrament

My Lord Jesus Christ, who for the love which you bear to men, remain night and day in this Sacrament full of compassion and of love, waiting, calling and welcoming all who come to visit you; I believe that you are truly present in the Sacrament of the altar.

I adore you humbly, and I thank you for all the graces which you have bestowed upon me; in particular for having given me yourself in this Sacrament, for having given me your most holy Mother Mary as my mediatrix and for having called me to visit you in this church.

I salute your most loving Heart, and this for three purposes: first, in thanksgiving for this great gift; secondly, to make amends to you for all the outrages which you receive in this Sacrament from all your enemies; thirdly, to adore you, by this visit, in all the places on earth in which you are present in this Sacrament and in which you are least revered and most abandoned.

My Jesus I love you with my whole heart! I grieve for having so often offended your infinite goodness. I promise, by your grace, never more to offend you and, as unworthy as I am, I consecrate myself to you completely; renouncing my entire will, my affections, my desires, and all that I possess. Do with me as you please and whatever you please with all that I have.

All that I ask and desire of you is your holy love, final perseverance, and the perfect accomplishment of your will. I entrust to you the souls in purgatory, especially those who had the greatest devotion to you in the Most Blessed Sacrament and to the most Blessed Virgin Mary. I also recommend to you all poor sinners.

Finally, dear Savior, I unite all my affections with those of your most loving Heart and I offer them, thus united, to your Eternal Father, beseeching Him in your name because of your love, to accept them and to grant my petitions. Amen.
