"The Blessed Sacrament is the invention of Love. It is life and fortitude for souls, a remedy for every fault, and viaticum for the last passage from time to eternity. In it sinners recover life for their souls; tepid souls true warmth; fervent souls, tranquility and the satisfaction of every longing... saintly souls, wings to fly towards perfection... pure souls sweet honey and rarest sustenance. Consecrated souls find in it a dwelling, their love and their life. In it they will seek and find the perfect exemplar of those sacred and hallowed bonds that unite them inseparably to their heavenly Bridegroom.

"Indeed, O consecrated souls, you will find a perfect symbol of your vow of Poverty in the small, round, light and smooth host; for so must the soul that professes poverty be: no angles, that is to say, no petty natural affections, either for things used nor for her employments, or for family or country... but she must ever be ready to leave, or give up, or change... Her heart must be free, with no attachments whatever...

"This by no means signifies insensibility of heart; no, for the more it loves the more it will preserve the integrity of the vow of Poverty. What is essential for religious souls is first that they should possess nothing without the permission and approbation of Superiors, and secondly, that they should possess and love nothing that they are not ready to give up at the first sign."
