“Thought for the Day – 10 June
The Eucharist: sun of his life!
To find the strength he needed, Bl Edward Poppe spent a great deal of time before the Tabernacle.
Sometimes he sighed, “Oh, Jesus, how little men love You! At least, the two of us love each other.”
On the eve of All Saints’ Day, after a long day of confessions,
a friend found him close to the Blessed Sacrament:
‘Edward, what are you doing there?”—
“Oh! I’m not doing anything, I’m just keeping Our Lord company.
I am too tired to talk to Him,
but I’m resting next to Him.”
Blessed Edward Joannes Maria Poppe, Pray for us!
