Time stops...we touch eternity!

"Help me to recognize You as Your disciples did at the Breaking
of the Bread, so that the Eucharistic Communion be the light
which disperses the darkness, the power which sustains me,
the unique joy of my heart." - St Pio of Pietrelcina

Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal of Jerusalem

"Time stops and we touch eternity
in this 'Sacrament of Love'. 
A love without limits,
a love that is not afraid to give of oneself
at the risk of being mocked, trampled, humiliated, crucified,
a love that like bread is given to 'eat',
the love of one who gives himself
at the risk of losing one’s own life."

Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal of Jerusalem
April 3, 2015, Homily
