A matter of sight...

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary, 
but what is unseen is eternal. - II Cor 4:18


"God is as really present
in the consecrated Host
as He is in the glory of Heaven."

As St Pascal lay dead in his casket,
he opened and closed his eyes twice 
when the sacred species was elevated at the Consecration.
