Food for the journey...
"The Holy Eucharist is offered to us on our pilgrimage as food so that we do not faint on the path to the fatherland, especially at the time when, tired by a long journey, our forces are apt to wane…The Lord left His Body in the Eucharist as a pledge of heavenly beatitude." ~ “Comments on Aquinas’ O Sacrum Convivum”
