"This most high and most excellent Sacrament
is the health of soul and body,
the remedy of all spiritual diseases,
my vices are cured,
my passions are restrained,
temptations are overcome or lessened,
a greater grace is infused,
virtue receives an increase,
faith is confirmed,
and charity inflamed and extended."
Imitation of Christ, Thomas à Kempis
Book 4, Chapter 4
