Honey throughout the world...

Make merry therefore on this beautiful day,
on which the sun of the Eucharist is rising.  Let your gratitude
never separate the Crib from the Altar, the Word made Flesh
from the God-Man made Bread of Life in the Most Blessed Sacrament."

St Peter Julian Eymard

Today is the dawn of the new redemption,
of the old restoration, of eternal happiness:
today, the heavens have distilled honey
throughout the whole world." - St Bonaventure

"If we approach with faith,
we too will see Jesus . . .
for the Eucharistic table takes the place of the crib.
Here the Body of the Lord is present,
wrapped not in swaddling clothes
but in the rays of the Holy Spirit."

St. John Chrysostom

"Celebrate the feast of Christmas every day,
even every moment,
in the interior temple of your spirit."- St Paul of the Cross

 Each of us must sink to child-level before the Crib.
Each of us, at the same time,
must rise to the Incarnation-level - Msgr Ronald Knox

"Raise Your tiny hand, divine Child,
and bless these young friends of Yours,
bless the children of all the earth." - Pope St John Paul II
