"Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock..."

"Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock."
(Rev. 3.20)

O most loving shepherd,
who, not satisfied with sacrificing
Yourself once to death on the altar of the cross
for the love of Your sheep,
has moreover been pleased to hide Yourself
in this divine Sacrament on the altars of our churches,
to be always near,
and to knock at the doors of our hearts,
and thus obtain Your admission!"

~ St. Alphonsus Liguori
