Filled with Surprise at these Words

There lived at Wittem, near Aix-la-Chapelle, a pious person who was accustomed to see Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament whenever she assisted at Mass. Now, one day she did not behold Our Lord as usual. She went, therefore, to the priest after Mass and said: “Rev. Father, you hae committed such and such a fault, and this is why I did not as usual see Jesus Christ during your Mass.” The priest was filled with surprise at these words, as he knew that what she said was true.*
