Nineteen centuries ago and yet this inheritance has come down to me! Jesus Christ confided it to His guardians, who have administered it, who have preserved it, in order to deliver it to us at the time of our majority. Those guardians are the Apostles and among them their imperishable Chief. The Apostles confided it to the priests, and the latter have handed it down to us. Opening for us the will, they give us our Host, consecrated in the thought of Our Lord at the Last Supper.

Yes, for Jesus Christ there is neither past, present, nor future. He, our good Father, knew us all at the Last Supper. He consecrated in power and in desire all our Hosts, and we were personally loved nineteen centuries before we were born. Yes, we were at the Last Supper, and Jesus reserved for us, not one Host, but a hundred, a thousand, still more, one for every day of our life.

Do we ever reflect on that?

Jesus willed to love us superabundantly. Our Hosts have been prepared for us. O let us not lose a single one! Our Lord comes only to bear fruit, and shall we allow Him to lie sterile? No, never! Make Him fructify by Himself. Do not let your Hosts lie sterile! He is so good, our good Saviour! The Last Supper lasted about three hours. It was the Passion of His love. Ah, how dear that Bread cost Him! They say bread costs, but what is its price compared with that of the Heavenly Bread, the Bread of Life? Let us, then, eat It. It is ours. Our Lord bought It for us. He Himself paid for It. He gives It to us, and we have but to take It. What an honor! What love!
