“My greatest happiness is to be before the Blessed Sacrament, where my heart is, as it were, in Its center.” — St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
Several years ago, as I was coming out of a Parish youth activity in Northern Virginia, a fifteen seater van full of kids pulled up and the mom rolled the window and asked, “Fr. Michael, would you mind just staying here with these kids for 5-10 minutes? I really need to make a visit to Jesus in the chapel!” She looked a little frazzled and tired, so I agreed, and tried to do a catechism competition to keep them engaged. Ten minutes later, she came out with a big smile on her face and thanked me from the heart. She had filled her spiritual tank and was ready to go!
