Our Lord to St. Faustina:
“I desire to unite Myself with human souls; My great delight is to unite Myself with souls. Know My daughter, when I come to a human heart in Holy Communion, My hands are full of all kinds of Graces, which I want to give to the soul. But souls do not even pay any attention to Me; they leave Me to Myself and busy themselves with other things. Oh, how sad I am that souls do not recognize Love! They treat Me as a dead object….
“But I want to tell you that eternal life must begin already here on earth through Holy Communion. EACH HOLY COMMUNION MAKES YOU MORE CAPABLE OF COMMUNING WITH GOD THROUGHOUT ALL ETERNITY (emphasis added)…
“Oh, how painful it is for Me that souls so seldom unite themselves to Me in Holy Communion. I wait for souls and they are indifferent to Me. I love them tenderly and sincerely and they distrust Me. I want to lavish Graces on them, and they do not want to accept them. They treat Me as a dead object, when My Heart is full of Love and Mercy…
“In order that you know at least some of My pain, imagine the most tender of mothers who has great love for her children, while those children spurn her love. Consider her pain. No one is in a position to console her. This is but a feeble image and likeness of My Love.”
St. Faustina responds to this Love of God in the Most Holy Eucharist by seeking to make whole for the vast majority Catholics who spurn our Lord’s Love by not worshipping at Mass and thus rejecting His Sacrifice made present and His true presence, as well as the large number who do worship, but receive Him as a dead object: “Jesus when you come to me in Holy Communion, You who together with the Father and the Holy Spirit have deigned to dwell in the little Heaven of my heart, I try to keep you company throughout the day. I do not leave You alone for even a moment. Although I am in the company of other people, my heart is always united to Him. When I am asleep, I offer Him every beat of My heart; when I awaken, I immerse myself in Him without saying a word. When I awaken, I adore the Holy Trinity for a short while and thank God for having deigned to give me another day, that the mystery of the Incarnation of His Son may once more be repeated in me, and that once again His sorrowful Passion may unfold before my eyes. I then try and make it easier for Jesus to pass through me to other souls. I go everywhere with Jesus; His presence accompanies me everywhere.”
Let us never take even one Holy Communion for granted. Let us prepare worthily! Let us stay and thank God worthily for at least 10 minutes after Mass! So, we can say like St. Faustina: “All the good that is in me is due to Holy Communion. I owe everything to Holy Communion. I feel that this Holy Fire has transformed me completely. Oh, how happy I am to be a dwelling place for You, O Lord! My heart is a Temple in which You dwell continually…My love wants to make up to You at least in part for the coldness of so great a number of souls.”
