Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"Hilary, in commenting on Mat. 26:17, held that Christ did not give His body and blood to Judas. And this would have been quite proper, if the malice of Judas be considered. But since Christ was to serve us as a pattern of justice, it was not in keeping with His teaching authority to sever [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"Chrysostom says (Hom. lxxxii in Matth.): 'Judas was not converted while partaking of the sacred mysteries: hence on both sides his crime becomes the more heinous, both because imbued with such a purpose he approached the mysteries, and because he became none the better for approaching, neither from fear, nor from the benefit received, nor [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"Some have said that Christ during the supper gave His body and blood to His disciples, but did not partake of it Himself. But this seems improbable. Because Christ Himself was the first to fulfill what He required others to observe: hence He willed first to be baptized when imposing Baptism upon others: as we [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Peter Julian Eymard

"If He had not died, He would now mount Calvary to save us; and if He had not already instituted the Blessed Sacrament, He would institute It for each one of us. Does not Saint Paul say: 'He loved me' concentrating in himself alone all the love of Our Lord?" Source:  St. Peter Julian [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – Catechism of the Catholic Church

"It is highly fitting that Christ should have wanted to remain present to his Church in this unique way. Since Christ was about to take his departure from his own in his visible form, he wanted to give us his sacramental presence; since he was about to offer himself on the cross to save us, [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – Pope St. John Paul II

"In the Eucharist Christ gives us his body and blood as food and drink, under the appearance of bread and wine, just as during the paschal meal at the Last Supper. Only through the Spirit, the giver of life, can the Eucharistic food and drink produce in us 'communion,' that is to say, the salvific [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – Catechism of the Catholic Church

"The Eucharist is thus a sacrifice because it re-presents (makes present) the sacrifice of the cross, because it is its memorial and because it applies its fruit: [Christ], our Lord and God, was once and for all to offer himself to God the Father by his death on the altar of the cross, to accomplish [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – Pope St. John Paul II

Daily Eucharist Quote – Pope St. John Paul II

"Beginning with the Upper Room and Holy Thursday, the celebration of the Eucharist has a long history, a history as long as that of the Church. In the course of this history the secondary elements have undergone certain changes, but there has been no change in the essence of the 'Mysterium' instituted by the Redeemer [...]

Daily Eucharist Quote – Catechism of the Catholic Church

"The Eucharist is the memorial of Christ's Passover, the making present and the sacramental offering of his unique sacrifice, in the liturgy of the Church which is his Body. In all the Eucharistic Prayers we find after the words of institution a prayer called the anamnesis or memorial." Source: Catechism of the Catholic Church [...]
