Seed of immortality (Easter Tuesday)

The bread that I will give is My flesh
for the life of the world. ~ Gospel of St John 6:51

“The Eucharist is source and pledge of blessedness
and glory, not for the soul alone, but for the body also.
...In the frail and perishable body that divine Host,
which is the immortal body of Christ, implants
a principle of resurrection, a seed of immortality,
which one day must germinate.”

Pope Leo XIII
