Longing for the Eucharist
Maria says: (Maria Mother and Teacher, Vol. 1) "My children, may the peace and grace of God be with you. Here I am to bring to you with my words that delicious coolness and that beneficial dew that will transform your souls, so as to render them fragrant flower beds in which my Son and I cultivate the most beautiful flowers.
Yes, my children, everyone of you is the vineyard, whose farmer is my divine Son. Everyone of you is the branch of that mysterious vine which is the Church. I would like however, to see you all intent in corresponding to the desires of the Farmer letting yourselves be cultivated. Be therefore, docile ground that can give abundant flowers and fruits.
The divine lifeblood that must circulate in every branch is the same for all: it is the lifeblood of grace. Even the nourishment is the same for all: it is the Blood of my Jesus.
But I today wish to speak to you especially about that vital food which you ought to seek with the desire of one who, having to undergo a long journey, arms himself with the necessary that will satisfy his hunger and quench his thirst.
I would like to give to you a true longing for the Eucharist, which is not the food of the angels who never were able and will not be able to be nourished with it, but the food given to the wayfarers on earth so that they do not fall along the way.
Children, if the Redemption and the Incarnation have been immense gifts for all humanity, to whom God has so testified his love, the Eucharist is the gift that God gives to each one of you. A gift of individual love in which the immense and infinite God makes himself all for all in order to demonstrate to each one that what is for the community is for the individual in the most complete and perfect way.
My children, I beg you, respond to this immense gift of love and believe in love. If the fruits are not many which souls gain from this loving sacrament, if many remain incredulous, cold and feel repugnance fir a food so delicious, seek the cause in your lack of concern in making known how the Son of God, loving men to the last, did not wish to abandon them, but worked the greatest miracle in order to perpetuate his stay on earth.
My children, the demon hates the Eucharist and makes it the object of his struggles and his scorn, and it is for this that many, many even amongst those who call themselves Christians, deny and offend this great mystery.
Know that if the sacrifice of the Mass in which the sacrifice of the Cross is renewed is great, not less great is the Eucharist mystery which from the Mass draws its origin. One completes the other and both exist in order to be able to give men help, life and grace.
For this I ask you often, every day even, when you are free from family commitments, to come to nourish yourselves with the flesh of my Jesus, whom I like to call with the sweet name of your Mother's bread. Yes, come to receive my Jesus, come with purity, with faith. It shall be me who will put my Son in your heart after having adorned you with the most beautiful virtues.
Put a right track on your Communions, an intention and never become discouraged. I permit you to weep over your sins and over others, but not for you to lose courage or to lack in patience.
If tears are holy and blessed, the discouragement does not come from God but from the evil one who wants to dissuade you from good in order to make you his easy prey.
My children, I bless you."
