THE Month of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus will be cordially welcomed by all devout Catholics who desire to respond to Our Lord's appeal at Paray-Monial for adoration and frequent Communion. The Sacred Heart and the Eucharist can never be disassociated. Devotion toward the one increases love for the other. These pious thoughts will help souls to know the Heart of Our Saviour better and, consequently, will foster love for the Sacred Humanity of Jesus Christ residing in the Most Blessed Sacrament. We gladly give our approval to this little book, for we feel sure it will enable the Faithful to spend the thirty days of June in close communion with the Eucharistic Heart of Christ. THE month of June contains two feasts which appeal in a special manner to all devout souls. They are the feasts of Corpus Christi and the Sacred Heart. One is the con1plement of the other. The revelation of the Divine Master to St. Juliana of Liege in the thirteenth century received its crowning glory at Paray-Ie-Monial nearly five hundred years after. Since then the two feasts seem to breathe the same spirit, until now devotion to the Sacred Heart practically means ·an ardent love for the Blessed Sacrament. Our Holy Founder, Pere Eymard, advises all earnest adorers to have one book on the Blessed Sacrament, which they shall read carefully during the month of June. He says this close study and concentration of thought is the most powerful means of imbibing a deep Eucharistic spirit. It is in order to supply the Faithful with such a book that the following pages have been culled from the prolific writings of Reverend Albert Tesniere, S.S.S. His is an able pen whence flow thoughts thoroughly impregnated with the spirit of his venerable Founder. Every meditation is in the fonn of the four ends of Sacrifice, a method of prayer which has now become identified with Pere Emyard and his Society, the Fathers of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Being a profound theologian, Pere Tesniere has given the Eucharist long and deep study. He makes the soul realize that only in the tiny white Host can she find on earth the Sacred Humanity of Our Saviour. The Sacred Heart is the vital organ of that Humanity in His Eucharistic, as It was in His mortal life. When Jesus appeared to Blessed Margaret Mary, He raised the veils of the Sacred Species, and revealed to the lowly Visitandine His Heart throbbing and longing for our love. "Behold the Heart that has so loved men! " The dominant tone of all the wonderful revelations at Paray-le-Monial is an appeal from the Man-God for more fervent adoration and frequent Communion. They are the means by which souls can alleviate His "ardent thirst to be loved by men in the Sacrament of His love." Pictures and statues are representations that appeal to the senses, but only in the Eucharist can be found here on earth the Divine Original. We trust that, by faithfully using these beautiful thoughts of Pere Tesniere, pious souls may spend a month all perfumed with the Eucharistic spirit and that, at the close of June's thirty days of grace, they may find themselves nearer and dearer to the great Heart of our Eucharistic Lord.
