Holy Longings......February 15


"Holy Communion, as the word itself implies, is the intimate union of Jesus and our soul and body. If we want to have life and have it more abundantly, we must live on the flesh of our Lord."
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta


Here is the meaning of the French words on this card ...

[At the top:]
"Holy Longings for First Communion"

[At the bottom:]
"Oh, how beautiful is Heaven! ...
"Speak no more of the pleasures of Earth.
"They promise me a pleasure still greater!
"It is to approach ... oh, how deep the mystery ...
"To feed upon God -- I, a poor child!"
Thanks to John for translating.
