Like a flame which enlightens...

"Be the apostle of the divine Eucharist, like a flame which
enlightens and warms, like the Angel of His heart who will go
to proclaim Him to those who don't know Him and will encourage
those who love Him and are suffering." - St. Peter Julian Eymard

“The Sacrament of the Body of the Lord
puts the demons to flight,
defends us against the incentives to vice and concupiscence,
cleanses the soul from sin,
quiets the anger of God,
enlightens the understanding to know God,
inflames the will and the affections with the love of God.
fills the memory with spiritual sweetness,
confirms the entire man in good,
frees us from eternal death,
multiplies the merits of a good life,
leads us to our everlasting home, and 
re-animates the body to eternal life.”

St Thomas Aquinas
