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.

Rather, he is called to serve as an instrument of the victorious action of Christ whose sacrifice, made present on the altars, obtains for humanity an abundance of divine gifts.
