Always In Proportion to the Soul’s Desire to Receive Him

Sr. Catherine Anne Emmerich, beatified by the Church on October 3, 2004, spoke of her experiences during Communion:

“At the moment of communicating, I used to see my Savior like a bridegroom standing by me and, when I had received, He disappeared, leaving me filled with the sweet sense of His presence. He pervades the whole soul of the communicant just as sugar is dissolved in water, and the union between the soul and Jesus is always in proportion to the soul’s desire to receive Him.”
