“He could not have commanded anything more beneficial, for this Sacrament [the Eucharist} is the fruit of the tree of life. Anyone who receives this Sacrament with the devotion of sincere faith will never taste death. It is a tree of life for those who grasp it, and blessed is he who holds it fast. The man who feeds on Me shall live on account of Me.”

(St. Albert the Great, O.P.)

Stir Up Your Heart

Chapel Franciscan Monastery

“When you have received Him, stir up your heart to do Him homage; speak to Him about your spiritual life, gazing upon Him in your soul where He is present for your happiness; welcome Him as warmly as possible, and behave outwardly in such a way that your actions may give proof to all of His Presence.”

St. Francis de Sales
