St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi: Daily Visits to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament

St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi (1566-1607) was a Carmelite nun from the age of seventeen. She recommended to busy people in the world to take time out each day for praying before the Holy Eucharist. "A friend,she wrote, "will visit a friend in the morning to wish him a good day, in the evening, a good night, taking also an opportunity to converse with him during the day. In like manner, make visits to Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, if your duties permit it. It is especially at the foot of the altar that one prays well. In all your visits to our Savior, frequently offer His Precious Blood to the Eternal Father. You will find these visits very conducive to increase in you divine love."
