In praise of partaking...

...after supper he took the cup saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me."
I Corinthians 11:25

"'What shall I render unto the Lord for all that He has rendered unto me?  
I shall take the chalice of salvation.'
Yes, O my God, if I take this Chalice, crimsoned with the Blood of 
my Master, and in utterly joyous thanksgiving, mingle my blood with 
that of the sacred Victim, He will impart to it something of His own infinity,
and it will give You, O Father, wonderful praise. ... 
O Jesus, grant that I may become to identified with You 
that I may ceaselessly express You in the sight of Your Father."
