Eucharist Quote: St. Thomas Aquinas

As to the effect, considered in each of the partakers. For, as Ambrose (Mag. Sent. iv, D, xi) says on 1 Cor. 11:20, this sacrament "avails for the defense of soul and body"; and therefore "Christ's body is offered" under the species of bread "for the health of the body, and the blood" under the [...]

Eucharist Quote: St. Josemaria Escriva

"Mad! Yes, I saw you (in the bishop's chapel, you thought you were alone) as you left a kiss on each newly-consecrated chalice and paten, so that he might find it there when for the first He would 'come down' to those Eucharistic vessels. (***The protagonist of this incident, which ocorred in Pamplona, Spain, in [...]

Eucharist Quote: Catechism of the Catholic Church

"The inexhaustible richness of this sacrament is expressed in the different names we give it. Each name evokes certain aspects of it. It is called: Holy Mass (Missa), because the liturgy in which the mystery of salvation is accomplished concludes with the sending forth (missio) of the faithful, so that they may fulfill God's will [...]

Virtue Quote: Ven. Fulton Sheen

"Modern man has become passive in the face of evil. He has so long preached a doctrine of false tolerance; he has so long believed that right and wrong were only differences in a point of view, that now when evil works itself out in a practice he is paralyzed to do anything against it." [...]

Eucharist Quote: Pope St. John Paul II

"It is not possible to give communion to a person who is not baptized or to one who rejects the full truth of the faith regarding the Eucharistic mystery. Christ is the truth and he bears witness to the truth (cf. Jn 14:6; 18:37); the sacrament of his body and blood does not permit duplicity." [...]

Virtue Quote: St. Peter Julian Eymard

"Delicacy, refinement, consists in permitting one's self nothing that might offend God. It consists in abstaining, from even the appearance of evil. It is the honor due to our position and life. One preserves it through respect for God and for the honor of His service. No longer to be alive to it, is to [...]

Eucharist Quote: St. Alphonsus Liguori

"All those who desire to advance in the love of Jesus Christ are exhorted to make a spiritual communion at least once in every visit that they pay to the Most Blessed Sacrament, and at every Mass that they hear; and it would even be better on these occasions to repeat the communions three times, [...]

Virtue Quote: St. Hildegard of Bingen

"For people have within themselves struggles of confession and of denial. How? Because this one confesses Me, and that one denies Me. And in this struggle the question is: Is there a God or not? And the answer comes from the Holy Spirit Who dwells in the person: God is, and created you, and also [...]
