Daily Eucharist Quote – St. Thomas Aquinas

"The actions performed by the priest in mass are not ridiculous gestures, since they are done so as to represent something else.

"The humility of Jesus: in Bethlehem, in Nazareth, on Calvary. But still more humiliation and more self-abasement in the most sacred Host - more than in the stable, more than in Nazareth, more than on the cross. That is why I must love the Mass so!
