534 Receiving Communion every day for so many years! Anybody else would be a saint by now—you told me—and I… I’m always the same!
Son, I replied, keep up your daily Communion, and think: What would I be if I hadn’t received?
710 You are worried and sad because your Communions are cold and barren. Tell me, when you approach the Sacrament, do you seek yourself or do you seek Jesus? If you seek yourself, there is reason indeed to be sad. But if you seek Christ—as you ought—could you want a surer sign than the cross to know you’ve found him?
—from The Way by Saint Josemaria Escriva
