…keep your eyes always fixed on he who guides you, and on the heavenly homeland to which he wants to lead you. Why should you worry whether Jesus wants you to reach the homeland by way of the desert or through the fields, when one way or the other you will reach blessed eternity just the same?
-St. Pio of Pietrelcina
Prayer of Adoration and Petition
I adore You, O Jesus, true God and true Man, here present in the Holy Eucharist, as I humbly kneel before You and unite myself in spirit with all the faithful on earth and all the Saints in heaven. In heartfelt gratitude for so great a blessing, I love You, my Jesus, with my whole soul, for You are infinitely perfect and all worthy of my love. Give me the grace nevermore in any way to offend You. Grant that I may be renewed by Your Eucharistic presence here on earth and be found worthy to arrive with Mary at the enjoyment of Your eternal and blessed presence in heaven.
