This also includes meditations for every day in the week and a novena for All Souls Day. Also a devout method for hearing Mass from Saint Leonard of Port Maurice. Faith teaches, and we are obliged to believe, that Jesus Christ is really present in the consecrated Host, under the appearances of bread; but we should also know that he remains on our altars, as on a throne of love and of mercy, there to dispense his graces, and there to show his love for us, by remaining with us night and day in this hidden manner. We know that the holy Church has instituted the festival of the most holy sacrament, which is celebrated for eight days, with so many solemn processions and expositions of the adorable sacrament, that Christians may, by their devotions, their thanksgivings, and affections, gratefully acknowledge and honor the loving presence and dwelling of Jesus Christ in the sacrament of the altar. O God! How many injuries and insults must this amiable Redeemer have suffered, how many must he suffer eyery day, from the. very men for the love of whom he remains on our altars! Of this he bitterly complained to his dear servant, Sister Margaret Alacoque, as is related by the author of the book" On the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus."
