Today is also the Optional Memoria of the nineteenth century French Saint Peter Julian Eymard, also known as ‘Apostle of the Eucharist’.

He said: ‘Have a great love for Jesus in his divine Sacrament of Love; that is the divine oasis of the desert. It is the heavenly manna of the traveller. It is the Holy Ark. It is the life and Paradise of love on earth’.

May the prayers of St Peter Julian draw you to enter ever more deeply into the mystery of the Eucharist, and may you feel the Love of God in your own life today, and be richly blessed.
