St. Gemma had a tremendous
devotion to the Blessed Eucharist, she once wrote to her Spiritual
Director, “If you could see, taste, and realize the good gifts that
Jesus gives me. I say Father, that there is not a minute that I
do not feel His dear presence; He reveals Himself ever more loving.
Today in Communion He was almost playful; He said: “See Gemma, I
have in My Heart a little daughter whom I love so much, and whom
I am so much loved, (she) is always asking Me for love and purity,
and I Who am Love itself and Purity itself, have lavished on her
as much of these treasures as a human creature is capable of possessing.
I have always guarded the purity of this child’s heart as the heart
of one chosen by the Divine Spouse Himself, and I have preserved
her as a spotless lily of paradise in My pure love.”
