"It is necessary to sit at table with the Lord, to share
the banquet with Him, so that His humble presence in the Sacrament
of His Body and Blood may restore to us the gaze of faith,
in order to see everything and everyone with God’s eyes,
in the light of His love.
Staying with Jesus who has stayed with us, assimilating His lifestyle,
choosing with Him the logic of communion with each other,
of solidarity and of sharing. The Eucharist is the maximum expression
of the gift which Jesus makes of Himself and is a constant invitation
to live our lives in the Eucharistic logic, as a gift to God and to others."
Pope Benedict XVI
