On the Eucharist...

"I throw myself at the foot of the Tabernacle like a dog at the foot of his Master."
- St. John Vianney

"When we speak to Jesus with simplicity and with all our heart, He does like a mother who holds her child's head with her hands and covers it with kisses and caresses."
- St. John Vianney, on adoring Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament

"He remains among us until the end of the world. He dwells on so many altars, though so often offended and profaned."
- St. Maximilian Kolbe

"If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion."
- St. Maximilian Kolbe

"The guest of our soul knows our misery; He comes to find an empty tent within us - that is all He asks."
- St. Therese of Lisieux

"Neither theological knowledge nor social action alone is enough to keep us in love with Christ unless both are proceeded by a personal encounter with Him. Theological insights are gained not only from between two covers of a book, but from two bent knees before an altar. The Holy Hour becomes like an oxygen tank to revive the breath of the Holy Spirit in the midst of the foul and fetid atmosphere of the world,"
- Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
