Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Catherine of Siena

"For those who are receptive this blood bestowed and accomplished all that they need to be saved and made perfect.  But since its gift of life and grace is in proportion to the soul’s readiness and desire, it deals death to the wicked.  So it gives death rather than life to those who receive it [...]

Daily Virtue Quote – Brother Lawrence
