Reverence in church, especially in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, must be also our chief exterior virtue. This respect is the solemn profession of our faith and, at the same time, a grace of piety and fervor; for God punishes irreverences committed in His sanctuary with a weakening of faith and a withdrawal of graces of devotion. Let us therefore, be very severe on the matter of reverence in worship. Let our bearing be dignified, our attitude religious; let us observe a strict silence, an absolute recollection of the senses. In church our attention must be for Jesus Christ only; friends must be as if they were not. Jesus is everything; the attention of the court centers on the king; he is the only one honored. At the sight of this profound and religious reverence, the worldly-minded will at least be forced to say: “There is something great here!” The weak, the lukewarm will be ashamed of their tepidity and will pay due homage to Jesus Christ; god example is the royal lesson of wisdom and the most fruitful apostolate.

“...If we wish to become saints, we must become interior souls. We are obliged thereto by our vocation as adorers. Without this interior spirit, how can we pray? If in the presence of our Lord we cannot spend a single instant without a book, if we have nothing o say to Him from our own heart, what are we going to do at adoration? Must we always borrow the thoughts and words of strangers? No, no! Let us strive to become recollected, interior souls. No one can be this in the way that Jesus and Mary were; but every one can become recollected in the degree given him by grace. Without the interior life, we shall never receive any consolation, encouragement in prayer; we shall only be unhappy at the feet of our Lord. If we wish to become true adorers, we must have this interior spirit. We should talk to our Lord when kneeling in His presence, ask Him questions, await His reply: we should enjoy God’s presence. We should be happy in His company, happy in His service; we should take pleasure in His familiarity, so sweet, so encouraging But to discover the Heart of Jesus we must be interior. After all what does it mean to be interior? It means to love, to converse, to live with Jesus. But Jesus does not make Himself heard by bodily ears, nor seen with bodily eyes; He speaks only to the recollected soul. He is wholly interior in the Blessed Sacrament: He no longer enters into the heart through the sight, as during His mortal life; He now enters the soul direct, and speaks to it alone. When the soul does not expand in His presence it is because He does not act upon it-there is some obstacle in His path...Oh, may that Blessed Mother, our perfect exemplar of the interior life, make us live, as she did in Jesus! May we like her, remain always in Him and never leave Him!”
