Mass

The Holy Mass is the most suitable moment of the day to ask God for graces for oneself and others.

(Directory for the Novitiate)

O, how immense is the gift of God given to us at the altar! The God-Sacrifice condescends and offers Himself into our hands, that with Him and through Him we can honor His and our Father to atone to Him and to solicit all the graces we need.

Having Jesus Christ at the altar, we can face anything. Jesus Christ at the altar is the gift of God’s immeasurable mercy.

(Directory for the Novitiate)

At the beginning of the Mass, let us reawaken to the love of God. Let us ask Him to fill us with the spirit of Jesus Christ. Let us immerse ourselves in the spirit of the Church to adore, thank, beg His pardon, and implore graces of He who sacrifices Himself for us.

Happiness that comes from a frequent participation in the Holy Mass ought to be for you a new happiness every day.

(Directory for the Novitiate)

Surely, our personal disposition does not constitute the merit and value of the sacrifice of the Mass. Nonetheless, it is true that we receive the fruits of the Mass in proportion to the appropriate disposition. At least, let us enlarge the meagerness of our sacrifice through the passion of our dedication.

May the loving self-donation of the God-Man in the Most Holy Eucharist encourage sisters to love each other perfectly and to give of self to Him in the Most Holy Sacrament not only at the moment of Holy Communion, but always and everywhere. Sisters need to surrender to Him all the faculties of the soul. In order to make this total self-donation for the honor and glory of their divine Bridegroom, sisters not only have Him as a perfect model and example, but also in the most effective means of Holy Communion. Sisters will strive to make their life nothing but an unremitting self-donation to the Lord Jesus.

My soul desires that Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament makes me His own possession increasingly more; that He molds me according to His liking and God’s thought so that, in the end, I become His entirely.

(Inspirations)

I should constantly remember that I belong to myself no more, and that I own nothing: I offered myself and everything what was mine as a property to the Lord Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. I desire to become the sacrifice of Jesus concealed in the Most Holy Sacrament.
