Whatever discouragements you may experience, bring them to Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in which we unite our sufferings to the sufferings of Our Lord for our eternal salvation. In the eternal beauty of the Eucharistic Sacrifice, you will recognize Christ Himself sustaining you and sustaining His holy Church for the day of His return in glory, when He will inaugurate new heavens and a new earth, when He will welcome us all to the His eternal Wedding Feast, the Wedding Feast of the Lamb. Yes, in the words of Dom Prosper Guéranger, after “a long prelude of sighs and sobs,” we will “enjoy the music of triumph, and all the joys of the divine nuptial banquet.”


Let us now lift up our hearts, together with the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, to the glorious pierced Heart of Jesus, first opened by the soldier’s spear on Calvary and forever open to receive us with unceasing and immeasurable love. Let us offer our hearts, tempted to give up amidst the struggles in our personal lives and in the world, to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Let us unite our sufferings completely to His on Calvary through the Eucharistic Sacrifice. In His Eucharistic Heart our hearts will be cleansed of sin and filled with lasting joy and peace. Through the union of our hearts with His glorious pierced Heart in the Eucharistic Sacrifice, we will hear already the music of the final victory, we will begin to know the perfect joy and peace of the Wedding Feast of the Lamb. Then the words of the Introit of today’s Mass will be ever upon our lips: “The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the protector of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?”

Heart of Jesus, fountain of life and holiness, have mercy on us.
Our Lady of Knock, pray for us.
Saint Patrick, Apostle of Ireland, pray for us.
