St. John Bosco (1815 to 1888)
Quotes On The Importance Of Eucharistic Adoration

imageFounder of the Society Of St. Francis De Sales (Saletians) St. John Bosco emphasized adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and veneration of Mary. Here are some of his quotes about the importance of Eucharistic Adoration in our lives:

  • "Do you want the Lord to give you many graces? Visit Him often. Do you want Him to give you few graces? Visit Him rarely. Do you want the devil to attack you? Visit Jesus rarely in the Blessed Sacrament. Do you want him to flee from you? Visit Jesus often!"

  • "Take refuge often at the feet of Jesus...My dear ones, the Visit to the Blessed Sacrament is an extremely necessary way to conquer the devil. Therefore, go often to visit Jesus and the devil will not come out victorious against you."

  • "Trust all things to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and to Mary Help of Christians and you will see what miracles are."

  • "I beg you to recommend to everyone, first, adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and then reverence for most holy Mary."

  • "Never omit the daily visit to the Most Blessed Sacrament, be it ever so brief. It is enough if it be constant."

  • "Night and day Jesus awaits us...Like a most tender mother, He opens His arms to us...He is there to draw us to Himself and lead us to paradise. Let us go visit Jesus often."

  • "There are two things the devil is deadly afraid of: fervent Communions and frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament."

  • "Jesus could have limited his presence only to the celebration of Mass, but no! He wanted to make a permanent dwelling among us. Night and day he awaits us and offers himself to us at all times. Like a most tender mother, he opens his arms to us. He is there generously to give us his gifts. He is there to draw us to him and lead us to paradise with him. Oh! Let us go visit him often."

  • "We envy the shepherds who went to visit the grotto of Bethlehem to see Him, kissed His little hand, and offered Him their gifts. "Lucky shepherds!" we exclaim. And yet there is no reason to envy them, for their fortune is ours, too. The same Jesus they visited in the grotto is in our tabernacle. The only difference is that the shepherds saw Him with the eyes of the body, whereas we see Him with the eyes of faith. Nothing will please Him more than our frequent visits to Him."

  • "Go to confession and communion as often as your confessor allows, and when you can, visit Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament."

  • "Go to the foot of the tabernacle and say one 'Our Father', 'Hail Mary', and 'Glory Be' when you can’t do anymore. This is enough to strengthen you against temptations. If someone has faith, makes visits to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and makes his daily meditation, I tell you, it will be impossible for him to sin."
