St. Padre Pio (1887 to 1968)
Quotes On The Importance Of Eucharistic Adoration

imageSt. Padre Pio was a 20th century Mystic and a Stigmatic.  He is a Patron Saint of Eucharistic Adorers because often times he would be found in Eucharistic Adoration.  He considered Adoration so important  that he even instructed his fellow friars "When you want to find me come near the Tabernacle".  Here are some of his quotes on the importance of Eucharistic Adoration in our lives:

  • "A thousand years of enjoying human glory is not worth even an hour spent in sweetly communing with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament."

  • "I weep and mourn at the feet of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament for often I’m consoled."

  • "We must always have courage, and if some spiritual languor comes upon us, let us run to the feet of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and let us place ourselves in the midst of the heavenly perfumes, and we will undoubtedly regain our strength."

  • "Kneel down and render the tribute of your presence and devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Confide all your needs to him, along with those of others. Speak to him with filial abandonment, give free rein to your heart, and give him complete freedom to work in you as he thinks best."

  • "By means of the angels, Jesus calls the poor and simple shepherds, in order to manifest Himself to them. He calls the learned men by means of their science. And all of them, moved by His inner grace, hasten to adore Him. He calls all of us by divine inspiration, and communicates with us by means of His grace. How many times has he invited us, too? And how readily have we responded? My God, I blush and become embarrassed when I have to answer such a question."

  • St. Padre Pio was so happy during his many hours of Eucharistic Adoration that he wrote: "When I am close to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, I feel as if my heart is bursting out of my chest."

  • "When Mass ended I remained with Jesus to render Him thanks. My thirst and hunger do not diminish after I have received Him in the Blessed Sacrament, but rather, increase steadily. Oh, how sweet was the conversation I held with Paradise this morning. The Heart of Jesus and my own, if you will pardon my expression, fused. They were no longer two hearts beating but only one. My heart disappeared as if it were a drop in the ocean."
