Eucharistic Reflection

For this Eucharistic Thursday post, here is a kind of poem of thanksgiving for the Mass, written by Bl. James Alberione:

"The Mass! Daystar of prayer, queen of devotions, source of the water of life and of the grace which the sacraments communicate!
The Mass! The most effective suffrage for the souls in Purgatory!
The Mass! Light, sacrifice, the grafting of the precious olive into a wild olive, sinful human beings.
The Mass! The glory of the priest, the strength of martyrs, the nourishment of virgins, the hidden power of apostles, writers and preachers, and the joy of the true Christian!
The Mass, celebrated in eternity by the supreme High Priest in heaven glorifies God and bings joy to the Blessed."

What eloquence flowing from the mind and heart of a no nonsense yet gentle Founder. I shall no longer refrain from placing my trust in his intercession.If only he had the sweet demeanor of Mother Thecla. Would that be asking too much?
