St. Faustina: Living the Eucharist

"Not only are we to receive and adore the Eucharist,
we must live the Eucharist.

We are to let the rays of mercy from the monstrance pass through us
and go out through all the world.

We are to be icons of mercy,
radiating love and mercy to others.

There is no greater way to energize ourselves to this task
than by spending time in the Presence of the Source of Love and Mercy,
Our Lord in the Most Holy Eucharist.

This is seen in the example given by one saintly priest:
If we were to sit for an hour a few feet away from a radioactive element,
how much would that change effect us?

The Lord is infinitely more powerful than this
and if we go to Him seeking grace and mercy,
how much more can we hope to be changed?!"
