The Eucharist


"Christ held Himself in His hands when He gave His Body to His disciples saying: 'This is My Body.' No one partakes of this Flesh before he has adored it."
- St. Augustine


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


"All the good works in the world are not equal to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass because they are the works of men; but the Mass is the work of God. Martyrdom is nothing in comparison for it is but the sacrifice of man to God; but the Mass is the sacrifice of God for man."
- St. John Vianney, Cure d'Ars


"We adore Thee most holy Lord Jesus Christ, here in all Thy Churches, which are in the whole world, because by Thy holy cross, Thou hast redeemed the world,"
- St. Francis of Assisi


"When you look at the Crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you then. When you look at the Sacred Host you understand how much Jesus loves you now,"
- Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta


"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


"The mark of the Christian is the willingness to look for the Divine in the flesh of a babe in a crib, the continuing Christ under the appearance of bread on an altar, and a meditation and a prayer on a string of beads,"
- Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

I love Archbishop Fulton Sheen. WE watch his reruns on EWTN whenever we can. It's amazing how current even his talks from the 50's can be!!!

I have some of his videos in my queue from Netflix although we haven't received any yet. He used to be on EWTN on Saturday nights before Fr. Corapi.
