In order to adore well, we must remember that Jesus Christ, present in the Eucharist, there glorifies, there continues all the mysteries, all the virtues, of His mortal life.

We must remember that the Holy Eucharist is Jesus Christ past, present, and future; that the Holy Eucharist is the highest development of the Incarnation and the mortal life of the Saviour; that Jesus Christ therein gives us all graces; that all truths culminate in the Eucharist; and that, in naming the Holy Eucharist, we have said all, since the Holy Eucharist is Jesus Christ.

Let the Holy Eucharist be, then, our starting point in the meditation of the mysteries, the virtues, the truths of religion. It is the furnace; those truths are only the flames. Let us start from the furnace, and we shall spread around its flames. What more simple than to find the resemblance between the Birth of Jesus in the stable, and His sacramental Birth on the altar and in our heart? Who does not see that the hidden life at Nazareth is continued in the Host of the Tabernacle and that the Passion of the Man-God is renewed in the Holy Sacrifice at every moment of time and in all places of the world?

Is not Our Lord sweet and humble in the Blessed Sacrament as He was during His mortal life? Is He not always there the Good Shepherd, the Divine Consoler, the Friend of the heart?

Happy the soul who knows how to find Jesus in the Eucharist, and in the Eucharist all things!

- St. Peter Julian Eymard
