The Holy Eucharist and the Sacred Heart of Jesus
“Behold this Heart which has so loved.”
Can we Spend One Hour with the Lord?
My dear children, contemplate My Heart is weighed down with a mysterious sadness in this divine Host. It beats steadily out of love. See the flame of love with which It is on fire. Here in the Host is My Heart, all on fire with love for you and for you alone. Unable to hold back any longer the burning desire with which it is filled, I have willed that My Heart is delivered up even to those who have pierced it through and through with the cruel sword of the blackest ingratitude.
Behold the Heart, beloved friends. I give It to you in exchange for your poor and ungrateful hearts! O, if you only knew the thirst for love which consumes Me in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist! Up until now I have too often been forsaken and ignored. But now the hour marked by Providence for My victory has arrived. Now I come as a conqueror and in spite of Satan and his agents, I will overcome the world by the omnipotence of My adorable Heart.”
My friends, will you sit with me for an hour? Will you allow your heart to rest against My Heart? Will you pause and allow Me to speak to your heart? Pause, listen and allow me to flood you with my graces. Come and exchange your stony heart for My Heart. Allow me to renew your inner peace, joy, and trust. Allow Me to heal your heart so that you can better love and serve others.
“I came to earth and returned to Paray-le-Monial to enkindle the fire of holy love, a living fire which will bring about a life of sacrifice- and what will I but that it be enkindled?”
Let us Reflect on Matthew 26: 40
When he returned to his disciples he found them asleep. He said to Peter, “So you could not keep watch with me for one hour?
Let us Pray:
“Behold the Heart”
“Behold the Heart, beloved friends. I give It to you in exchange for your poor and ungrateful hearts! O, if you only knew the thirst for love which consumes Me in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist!… I come as a conqueror and in spite of Satan and his agents I will overcome the world by the omnipotence of My adorable Heart.”
– Fr. Mateo, 20 Holy Hours
Most Sacred Heart if Jesus please have mercy on America. Protect our country from communism, marks and socialism. Our freedom is at hand. I know we are sinners but please take pity on us.
Thank you for this meditation which I will take with me on Friday when I do my holy hour. For over 20 years, I have made a holy hour at 3 AM on Monday mornings, which was the only time I figured a woman with a “full” schedule could guarantee that she could always show up for adoration. It has worked out well for me and the rewards have been incredible for me. So, selfishly, I wouldn’t miss now. I found the Carmelite book on Eucharistic adoration helpful, as well.
