What Do You Do During Those Long Hours

One day, someone asked St. Francis of Assisi, “Father, what do you do during those long hours before the Blessed Sacrament?” He replied: “My son, in return I ask you what does the poor man do at the rich man’s door, the sick man in presence of his physician, the thirsty man at the limpid stream? What they do, I do before the Eucharistic God. I pray, I adore , I love.”
