Saint John Vianney was a French priest who is known for his incredible love for the Eucharist. He believed that the Eucharist was the “best prayer” that we could offer to God, and he spent hours each day in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.
Vianney’s love for the Eucharist was evident in his words and actions. He once said, “There is nothing so great as the Eucharist. If God had something more precious, He would have given it to us.” He also said, “If we really love the good God, we should make it our joy and happiness to come a few minutes to adore Him, and ask Him for the grace of forgiveness. We should regard those moments as the happiest in our lives.”
Vianney’s love for the Eucharist inspired countless people to rediscover their own faith and devotion. He showed them that the Eucharist is not just a ritual, but a real encounter with Jesus Christ. He taught them that the Eucharist is the source of all grace and the key to a happy and holy life.
Vianney’s love for the Eucharist is a powerful reminder of the importance of this sacrament in our lives. The Eucharist is not just a piece of bread and wine; it is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, truly present in our midst. When we receive the Eucharist, we are not just receiving a symbol of Christ’s presence, but we are actually receiving Christ Himself.
If we want to grow in our love for God, we need to make the Eucharist a central part of our lives. We need to spend time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, and we need to receive the Eucharist as often as possible. When we do these things, we will experience the transforming power of the Eucharist in our lives.
Here are some ways to grow in our love for the Eucharist:
- Make time for daily Mass.
- Receive the Eucharist frequently.
- Spend time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.
- Read about the Eucharist.
- Talk to other people about their love for the Eucharist.
- Share your own love for the Eucharist with others.
The Eucharist is the “best prayer” that we can offer to God. It is the source of all grace and the key to a happy and holy life. Let us grow in our love for the Eucharist and experience its transforming power in our lives.
St John Vianney’s MIRACLE Prayer to Love God
‘I love You, O my God,
and my only desire is to love You
until the last breath of my life.
I love You, O my infinitely lovable God,
and I would rather die loving You,
than live without loving You.
I love You, Lord and the only grace I ask
is to love You eternally…
My God, if my tongue cannot say
in every moment that I love You,
I want my heart to repeat it to You
as often as I draw breath.’ AMEN
