Imagine the Pope inviting you to Rome to spend an hour with him; you would feel like the most important person in the world. Who would not see this as a great honor and do anything to get there? Yet it is a much greater honor to spend an hour with Jesus Himself.

Those who kept company with Jesus in the gospel stand out as men and women of great faith–they were His chosen friends who really believed in Him. They were ridiculed then, but are admired now. Those who keep company with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament are His friends today who will stand out for all eternity for their faith in His Real Presence.

Jesus hides His glory in the Blessed Sacrament that you may give Him glory by coming to Him in faith, and that you may love Him for Himself! He could fill every Catholic church 7 days a week, 24 hours a day by letting a single ray of His glory shine out. People would come from all over the world to see the miracle. But the miracle He wants us to see is the miracle of His divine love and humility where He Who created the whole world and Whom the whole world cannot contain, contains Himself in the Blessed Sacrament for love of us, to be Our Divine Companion during our pilgrimage through life, to be Our Good Shepherd who leads us to life-giving waters, to be Our Divine Physician who comes to heal the lonely and the broken-hearted.
