Who Do Men say that I am?

Jesus has been called 'The Prisoner of Love' within the tabernacle.
In the 1920's, Jesus described to Sr. Josefa Menendez, in her convent in Poitiers, France, the experience of abandonment in churches . . . .


". . . Do I not know that family cares. . household concerns. . and the requirements of your position in life . . make continual calls upon you? But cannot you spare a few minutes in which to come and prove your affection and gratitude? Do not allow yourselves to be involved in useless and incessant cares, but spare a few moments to visit and receive this Prisoner of Love! . . .

"Were you weak or ill in body, surely you would find time to see a doctor who would cure you? . . . Come, then, to One who is able to give both health and strength to your soul, and bestow the alms of love on this Divine Prisoner who watches for you, calls for you and longs to see you at His side.

When about to institute the Blessed Sacrament, Josefa, these were My feelings . . ."
