Near, so near that ...

"Those who love and see each other feel irresistibly attracted to each other; they cannot bear to be separated. This, we may believe, was one of the reasons why Jesus invented the Eucharist.
He wanted to shorten the distance; to look on us, not alone from far-off heaven, but from near by, so near that, if the sacramental veils of the Mystery were rent, we should be able to hear His throbbing Heart and see ourselves mirrored in the pupils of His eyes." 

Fr José Guadalupe Treviño
The Holy Eucharist
