Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"This sacrament was appropriately instituted at the supper, when Christ conversed with His disciples for the last time. First of all, because of what is contained in the sacrament: for Christ is Himself contained in the Eucharist sacramentally. Consequently, when Christ was going to leave His disciples in His proper species, He left Himself with [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Ven. Fulton Sheen

Joy is significantly different from pleasure. Pleasure is a feeling reflecting that instant. It mimics joy but it is not joy. Joy is persistent and lasting. A person who is joyful does not fall out of joy because prosperity ends and adversity starts. The joy persists. Pleasure is fleeting. When a pleasurable activity ends, so does [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"How must we draw inspiration from Our Lord, and how obey Him in all that we do? By recalling His Presence in the Blessed Sacrament and by praying for His guidance. Do not go to seek Our Lord in heaven, for He is nearer to you than that. It is well; doubtless, to rise toward [...]
