Daily Reflections on the Eucharist Day - 105

Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament is our Model since He teaches us the virtues that make saints.

Let us to that end consider His state therein, for the form of His life will constitute the form of our virtues. In studying how He is in the Eucharist, we shall discover what He wills, for the exterior is an indication of the interior. By words and actions, we get a glimpse of the soul. When we regarded Our Lord poor and conversing with the poor, we knew that He had come to save us through poverty. When He died for us, He showed us what we have to do to go to heaven. Now, the state of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, the characteristic that dominates It, that makes an impression on us, is annihilation. This state ought, then, to make us comprehend His occupations, His virtues, which all share, each in its own way, this form, this seal of annihilation and humility. Study this annihilation, and you will know what you have to do to resemble your Model and live in the grace of Eucharistic holiness. Recall that it is the dominant characteristic of Jesus Eucharistic, and that, it must be yours, also, if you wish to abide in the grace of the Eucharist.
