The Eucharist: essential

"The Eucharist is essential for us: it is Christ who wishes
to enter our lives and fill us with His grace." - Pope Francis

"This living with Christ
determines all our being and all our acting,
and it is lived and nourished above all in prayer,
in staying close to the Lord, in Adoration,
in a heart to heart conversation with Him."

Pope Francis
