Adapted from

“Each one of us is a co-worker of Christ – we must labour hard to carry Him to the hearts where he has not yet been known and loved…

But, unless we have Jesus, we cannot give Him: that is why we need the Eucharist.  Spend as much time as possible in front of the Blessed Sacrament and He will fill you with His strength and His power.” – St. Teresa of Calcutta.
