Deign, O Jesus, Pelican of heaven, me, a sinner, in Thy Blood to lave, to a single drop of which is given all the world from all its sin to save. ~ from the Latin hymn "Adoro Te Devote" by St. Thomas Aquinas
What greaterproof of lovecouldJesusgive usthan the sacrifice ofhimself?
O, Good Pelican
My Flesh is truly food, and my Blood is truly drink.
This is the true Bread of Heaven
Sanctuary of Love
What can I do to imitate You?
There is no true love without sacrifice.
Notcontent to die,to be ourvictim, Jesushimselfgivesus the fooddivine Hebleeds forus,his bloodpouringmilk
to wash and feedhis timidchildren.
SACRED HEART OF JESUS, SAVE US!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, be my Love!
Come and participate in the body and blood
of the victim immolated for us; come and remember
that this death is our life. Jacques Benigne Bossuet, Bishop of Meaux in France
I will feedmy soul with the sweetness ofthe Cross.
