St. Manuel felt called to the priesthood at the age of 12. After his ordination in 1901, he was sent to preach at a church which he found to be unclean and abandoned. There, praying before a Tabernacle covered in dust and cobwebs, with torn altar cloths and oil dripping onto the floor from the sanctuary lamp, he decided to dedicate his life to providing for Jesus’ needs in the Tabernacle.

This poor, abandoned Tabernacle taught the young priest more about the Love of Jesus than his years of theological study. It marked his entire life from that moment. He dedicated himself until his death to spreading devotion to the Eucharist, proclaiming these words which he would go on to choose for his epitaph: “Jesus is here! He is here! Do not abandon Him!”

This saintly bishop will help you to receive Holy Communion more fervently and to love Jesus more deeply in Eucharistic Adoration. The Bishop of the Abandoned Tabernacle by Victoria Schneider will awaken you to a new experience of Our Lord — that you may see, hear, love, and console “Love who is not loved.”

"I ask to be buried next to a tabernacle, so that my bones, after death, as my tongue and my pen in life, are saying to those who pass: there is Jesus! There it is! Do not leave Him abandoned!" 

Saint Manuel González García

Testimonials for The Bishop of the Abandoned Tabernacle: St. Manuel Gonzalez Garcia

How real they are for our times the life, the message and the testimony of St. Manuel. It is not by chance that the canonization takes place at this moment in which along with a powerful call for evangelization by the sign of charity, we hear the same call to center our lives, the lives of the priests and of the Christian communities in the Eucharist and in Eucharistic adoration. Let’s not be deaf to the voice of the Lord, nor be blind to the signs Our Lord is offering us in these times that we live.
