The past week was especially difficult with funerals and attacks which came from the enemy. There was a peace that overcame me in that hour and all the words which were waiting to flow out in supplication were stilled.
The thought that came to mind was this:
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple...Thou hast said, "Seek ye my face." My heart says to thee, "Thy face, Lord, do I seek." Hide not thy face from me.~Psalm 27And there was Our Lord. I felt an immense warmth surround me. And I wept. It's hard to put into words what it is like to be in a permanent place to adore Jesus exposed in the Blessed Sacrament.
The words of O Sacrum Convivium come to mind:
O sacrum convivium! in quo Christus sumitur: recolitur memoria passionis ejus: mens impletur gratia: et futurae gloriae nobis pignus datur. Alleluia.Christ's humility in giving himself as our Sacred Food continues in that place called the Adoration Chapel. I was on my face literally because what other thing could I give in return. It felt right to be prostrate in front of the Blessed Sacrament, no feelings of self-consciousness. I understood how little I am and I was consumed with utter love.
O sacred banquet! in which Christ is received, the memory of his Passion is renewed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory to us is given. Alleluia.
