On Holy Mass
On Holy CommunionGod is more honored by a single Mass than he could be by all actions of angels and me together, however fervent and heroic they might be.p. 3
Why was the purity of Mary so great but because she was to bear the Son of God in her womb. If she had not been purer than the angels, it would not have been seemly for the Word to dwell in her; he would not have taken such delight in her, nor would he have brought her the precious gifts with which he filled her at the moment of the Incarnation. In Holy Communion we receive the same Jesus Christ that Mary bore for nine months in her womb. What is our purity? What care do we take to prepare our soul? We sometimes commit faults on the eve, on the day, and even in the very act of receiving Communion. Yet Jesus comes to us! How kind He is!
We are exhorted to consecrate our work, each day, to the honor and glory of God.
Your vocation is not a profession. It is a mission. The vocation of marriage is a mission. A vocation to the priesthood is a mission. A vocation to the religious life is a mission.
