St. Peter Julian Eymard (1811-1868) was a Marist priest and provincial whose life was centered upon the Eucharist. He founded several congregations and societies that focused on honoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. A prolific writer, he wrote four volumes on the Eucharist alone.

Of the Blessed Sacrament, St. Peter Julian wrote:

“How kind is our Sacramental Jesus! He welcomes you at any hour of the day or night. His Love never knows rest. He is always most gentle towards you. When you visit Him, He forgets your sins and speaks only of His joy, His tenderness, and His Love. By the reception He gives to you, one would think He has need of you to make Him happy.”
