Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament: September 2009 Archives

An ancient phrase indicates what a true relationship with God is: Deus es consumens: he purifies from sin and makes us white as wool. He consumes our darkness with his light, with his love, with his entire self. gives luster to soul, stripes away sin and brights the souls giving the same grace which was given to the apostles.

So it can be said, "My God and my all" as Saint Francis did. Everything is drawn into the person  of God. Everything changes in our life when we abandon ourselves to the Lord: absolutely everything changes when we give total reverence for the Divine.

When we come to Christ in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, or walk up to the altar to receive the Holy Eucharist, we know in the root of our being that he totally different from me and my experience. In these gestures of love we say with John the Baptist: I must decrease while he must increase.
