It is a big mistake to trust our feelings and emotions. A visit from God after reception of the Eucharist is a gift. We should not expect gifts every day.
I know a man who is frequently visited after reception. He has exactly the opposite feeling - an overwhelming feeling of sorrow at the sins committed by the whole world. He is often brought to tears and sometimes doesn’t receive because it crushes him. That doesn’t mean that the Holy Spirit is not sanctifying his soul. Feelings of happiness are not a sign of sanctifying grace.
Sanctifying grace is an action of the Holy Spirit whereby we are inclined to sin less and practice virtue more. This does not come from ourselves but only by the action of the Holy Spirit on our souls. A good sign that we are being sanctified is an habitual, long term absence of anger and inclination to pray for those who hurt us but we can be mistaken about this too. A good spiritual director can help us know that we are on the right path.
And none of this happens without our cooperation. We have to cooperate with grace. The Eucharist isn’t a magic pill which makes us feel happy or makes us sin less. Many feel this way after reception and then go right back to sinning. Cooperation requires docility to the Holy Spirit. Modern western man is not taught to be quiet and docile. We are not good listeners.
