Another prayerful meditation on the Blessed Sacrament, and the thankfulness we should have in receiving it, from his awesome Ascetical Works Volume VI, The Holy Eucharist:

O God of love, dost Thou, then, so much desire to dispense Thy favors to us and yet are so little anxious to obtain them?  Oh, what sorrows we shall feel at the hour of death, when we think of this negligence so pernicious to our souls! O my Lord, forget, I beseech Thee, all that is past; for the future, with Thy help, I will prepare myself better, by endeavoring to detach  my affections from everything that prevents me from receiving all those graces which Thou desirest to bestow upon me. And after Communion I will lift up my heart to Thee as much as I can, in order to obtain Thy help that I may advance in Thy love, – oh, grant me grace to accomplish this. O my Jesus, how negligent have i hitherto been in loving Thee! The time which Thou in Thy mercy mayest yet allot to me in this life, is the time to prepare myself for death and to make amends by my love for the offences I have committed against Thee.  I will spend it entirely in lamenting my sins and in loving Thee. I love Thee, my Jesus, my love; I love Thee, my only Good; have pity on me, and do not forsake me.

And thou, O Mary, my hope, do not cease to help me by thy holy intercession!
