St. Magaret Mary Alacoque (1647 to 1690)
Quotes On The Importance Of Eucharistic Adoration

imageSt. Margaret Mary Alacoque is best known for the Lord revealing to her the devotion to His Sacred Heart.  During these revelations, among other things, a "Holy Hour" of reparation was requested by our Lord.  These revelations eventually helped to cement the idea of spending a "Holy Hour" before the Blessed Sacrament.  Here are some of her quotes about the importance of Eucharistic Adoration in our lives:

"Come To Me - I Wait For You In This Sacrament Of Love" Flier
  • Because Jesus loves you infinitely, unlimited is the joy you bring to His Sacred Heart when you come to spend an hour with Him in the Blessed Sacrament. In an apparition to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, Jesus spoke these moving words: 'I have a burning thirst to be honored by men in the Blessed Sacrament'.

    "Letters Of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque"
  • "I desire but this one grace, and long to be consumed like a burning candle in His holy Presence every moment of the life that remains to me. For that I would be willing, I think, to suffer all the pains imaginable till judgment day, if only I should not have to leave His sacred presence."

    "Holy Hour Of Reparation" Prayerbook
  • Jesus speaking to St. Margaret - "Make Reparation for the ingratitude of men. Spend an hour in prayer to appease divine justice, to implore mercy for sinners, to honor Me, to console Me for My bitter suffering when abandoned by My Apostles, when they did not WATCH ONE HOUR WITH ME."
