"You receive Communion to become holy, not because you already are." Saint Peter Julian Eymard is responsible for helping many Catholics discover the importance of the Holy Eucharist. Born in Grenoble, France, he entered the seminary at a young age despite his father’s disapproval. After becoming very ill and almost dying, he made a miraculous recovery and was ordained to the diocesan priesthood in 1834, and later joined the Marists. Overcoming many difficulties he established the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament and the Servants of the Blessed Sacrament, both dedicated to adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
