More and less

" I am proposing St John (the Baptist) to you as one of the Saints
of the Blessed Sacrament.  He never lived to kneel at the Last Supper
and receive the Body of Christ from the hands of Christ Himself. 
He never lived to wait with our Lady and the apostles, and see the
Holy Spirit which descended upon Christ at the Jordan descend upon
Christ's Church in the Cenacle.  But he has left us one golden phrase,
which should never be far from our minds when we are waiting for
our Blessed Lord to come to us in Holy Communion:
'He must become more and more;
I must become less and less.' "
Ronald Knox

Reflections on the Holy Eucharist, p 60
