Time - embraced by eternity

Restore us, O God Almighty; make your face shine upon us,
that we may be saved. - Psalm 80:7

"The Eucharist is the bread of eternal life
of the new world that is
given us today in the holy Mass, so that
starting now the future world begins in us. ...
With the Eucharist, therefore, heaven comes down to earth, 
the tomorrow of God descends into the present 
and it is as if time remains embraced by divine eternity."
Pope Benedict XVI
