“[When you receive the Sacred Host] I fill you with My love. Then you have only to ask Me for the virtues and perfection you need and you can be sure that in those moments when God is reposing in His creatures, nothing will be refused you” (Message of God the Father to Sister Eugenia Ravasio).

Our Heavenly Father invites us, after having received Holy Communion, to ask Him for everything that will help us on the path of holiness. When we receive the Holy Eucharist in a worthy manner, God is incomparably close to us and fills us with His love. We, for our part, must be in the best disposition to receive the graces of the Lord. We men are receptive. Although we are generally used to being very active and creative -which is undoubtedly a good thing-, we must understand that God’s love is undeservedly communicated to us (here the Father tells us: “I fill you with my love”) and that we must receive it.

These moments of contemplative receptivity to love are very important. They mark our soul more deeply than any other activity. They are the moments of the most intimate exchange of love, which requires hardly any words and even less action. This contemplative attitude is not to be confused with mere passivity. Rather, it is the utmost attentiveness of our heart to receive what God has prepared for it. It is the attitude of Mary, Martha’s sister, as she sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to His words (Lk 10:38-42).

It is the same in the Holy Mass, through which the Sacrifice of the Lord, offered by the priest on the altar, is actualised. Our participation consists especially in receiving and interiorising all that takes place there.

If we are in a state of grace, the Lord can pour out upon us all His immeasurable mercy, which He bestowed upon us through His sacrifice on the Cross; and we can receive it. It is only necessary that the soul be willing, and then we can be sure that, “in those moments when God is reposing in His creatures, nothing will be refused you.”
