No more a captive!

“When you look at the Crucifix, you understand how much 
Jesus loved you then.  When you look at the Sacred Host you understand 
how much Jesus loves you now.”- Bl Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"When you see It exposed, say to yourself: Thanks to this Body, I am no longer dust and ashes, I am no more a captive but a freeman: hence I hope to obtain heaven and the good things that are there in store for me... eternal life, the heritage of the angels, companionship with Christ; death has not destroyed this Body which was pierced by nails and scourged, . . . this is that Body which was once covered with blood, pierced by a lance, from which issued saving fountains upon the world, one of blood and the other of water. . . This Body He gave to us to keep and eat, as a mark of His intense love."

St John Chrysostom
reflecting on the Body of Christ

We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee,
because by Thy holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
