“Meditate well on this: Seek God above all things. It is right for you to seek God before and above everything else, because the majesty of God wishes you to receive what you ask for. This will also make you more ready to serve God and will enable you to love him more perfectly”
St. Paschal Baylon, O.F.M. (1540-1592)
Feast of St. Paschal is May 17th, patron saint of shepherds, cooks, and Eucharistic Congresses
The saints often send us messages to remind us of the importance of prayer, and St. Paschal reminds us of the importance of taking time to pray with Jesus Christ in Eucharistic Adoration. There are 24 wonderful quotes below from St. John Paul II and Paul VI on Eucharistic adoration that are worth your time to read. Saint Paschal — Pray for Us !
