"Let no one eat that flesh, unless he has first adored it." - St Augustine
"In order to penetrate a whole human life
with the divine life
it is not enough to kneel once a year before the crib
and let ourselves be captivated by the charm of the holy night.
To achieve this,
we must be in daily contact with God. ...
Just as our earthly body needs its daily bread,
so the divine life must be constantly fed.
'This is the living bread
that came down from heaven.'"
~ St. Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein)
