Sweet fact: Real Presence!

 Then you will know the truth, 
and the truth will set you free.- John 8:32 

"The Blessed Sacrament is God.
Devotion to the Blessed Sacrament is simply divine worship.
Turn it which way we will, throw the light of love and knowledge
now on one side of it, now on another, still the result is the same,
the one inexhaustible sweet fact of the Real Presence. 

In the hands of the priest, behind the crystal of the monstrance,
on the tongue of the communicant, now, and for a thousand times,
and almost at our will and pleasure, there are the Hands and Feet,
the Eyes and Mouth, the swift Blood and living Heart of Him
whom Thomas touched and Magdalen was fain to touch,
the Soul that ... set the prisoners free."

Fr Frederick Faber
