“When we adore Christ in the Eucharist, exposed in the monstrance, we gaze directly at the mystery of His Presence. The Eucharist is love made visible.”
(From A Pastoral Letter on Adoration of the Most Holy Eucharist by Bishop James Conley)
“…in Judas, the Divine Savior saw not only the Iscariot, the apostle of Jewish nationality, but likewise the coming legion of traitorous souls. In the traitor’s kiss, He felt the outrage of so many sacrilegious Communions.”
(Father Jose Guadalupe Trevino from The Holy Eucharist)
“Come to the foot of my tabernacle and, far from the impure and degraded world, breathe in an atmosphere of purity. Come and eat My Body and drink My Blood, and I shall live within your heart, and My arms shall enfold you in an embrace which it depends on your free will to make last till the eternal embrace in heaven.”
(From The Holy Eucharist by Father Jose Guadalupe Trevino)
When you see the Host come forth from the tabernacle, and appear between the hands of the priest, regard it as the standard of Christian militia, which summons you to labor, and your soul to battle.
Father Jacques Nouet, S,J.
