Making Room for Jesus...

"To make room in our life for the Eucharistic Lord, so that He can change our life into His, is that asking too much?"

"The Lord is present in the tabernacle in his divinity and in his humanity.  He is not present for his own sake but for ours: it is his delight to be with the 'children of men.'  He knows, too, that, being what we are, we need his personal nearness.  In consequence, every thoughtful and sensitive person will feel attracted and will be there as often and as long as possible.  And the practice of the Church, which has instituted perpetual adoration, is just as clear."

-  St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
   (Edith Stein)
