“I fell in love with the Blessed Sacrament from the Beginning…”

” But I fell in love with the Blessed Sacrament from the beginning – and by the Mercy of God have never fallen out again… ”  J.R.R. Tolkein


Regarding receiving the Bread of Heaven:

Tolkien: ” Seven times a week is more nourishing than seven times at intervals. ”

“ Out of darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament…. There you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves upon earth, and more than that: Death: by the divine paradox, that which ends life, and demands the complete surrender of all, and yet by the taste [or foretaste] of which alone can what you what you seek in your earthly relationships [love, faithfulness, joy] be maintained, or take on the complexity of reality, of eternal endurance, which every man’s heart desires. “

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
