SJV on Eucharist, Love and Prayer

Some good quotes, courtesy of Spence's mom:
"Every consecrated Host is made to burn Itself up with love in a human heart."
-St John Vianney

And another thought about fires....
Recommending liturgical prayer, St John Vianney would say,

“Private prayer is like straw
scattered here and there:
If you set it on fire
it makes a lot of little flames.
But gather these straws into a bundle
and light them,
and you get a mighty fire,
rising like a column into the sky;
public prayer is like that."
