The Eucharist




“When we are before the Blessed Sacrament, instead of looking about, let us shut our eyes and our mouth; let us open our heart: our good God will open His; we shall go to Him, He will come to us, the one to ask, the other to receive it; it will be like a breath from one to the other.  What sweetness do we not find in forgetting ourselves in order to seek God!  The saints lost sight of themselves that they might see nothing but God, and labor for Him alone; they forgot all created objects in order to find Him alone.  This is the way to reach Heaven.”   St. John Vianney

“Be a Catholic: When you kneel before an altar, do it in such a way that others may be able to recognize that you know before whom you kneel.”   St. Maximilian Kolbe

“What does it matter where we go?  Wherever we go, won’t we be serving God there?  And everywhere we go, won’t we have Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament?  Isn’t that enough to make us happy? ”   Bl. Solanus Casey OFM Cap.

“To sustain the soul in the pilgrimage of life, God looked over creation, and found nothing that was worthy of it.  He then turned to Himself, and resolved to give Himself.”   St. John Vianney

“The power of the priest is the power of the Divine Person, for the transubstantiation of the bread requires as much power as the creation of the world.”     St. Bernardine of Siena
