Go, then, and partake


"The Bread of Life, the Bread of the angels,
is not offered only for our adoration and homage,
but was given to us as food. 
Let us go, then, and partake of this Food
to nourish and fortify our souls."

St Robert Bellarmine

From St Robert Bellarmine's treatise On the Ascent of the Mind to God:
  "May you consider truly good whatever leads to your goal
and truly evil whatever makes you fall away from it."

Ste Robert Bellarmine, ora pro nobis!
