Greatest JOY on earth

 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God? - Psalm 42:2
"At the Eucharist Christ feeds our hunger with Himself.  In truth, we do receive Him who is our Beloved and the Lover of our souls.  We receive Him in His immense fullness - body, blood, soul, and divinity.  
This is the greatest moment of union, the greatest union on earth.  It is, therefore, the greatest moment of joy; we possess and are possessed.  The All is with us and we are in the All, one with Him and with each other in Him.  This is our greatest joy on earth. We thirst for love and Love has come to us."

Father Émile-Marie Brière (+2003)
