Same Body broken, same Blood flowed...

“Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the 
Eucharist in turn confirms our way of thinking.” St Irenaeus

"The Mass is that which makes the cross visible to every eye; it placards the Cross at all the crossroads of civilization; it brings Calvary so close that even tired feet can make the journey to its sweet embrace; every hand may now reach out to touch its Sacred Burden, and every ear may hear its sweet appeal, for the Mass and the Cross are the same.
In both there is the same offering of a perfectly surrendered will of the beloved Son, the same Body broken, the same Blood flowed forth, the same Divine Forgiveness.
All that has been said and done and acted during Holy Mass is to be taken away with us, lived, practiced, and woven into all the circumstances and conditions of our daily lives."

Venerable Fulton J Sheen
Calvary and the Mass: The Ite, Missa Est
