Do this in remembrance of me (1 Cor 11:24-25).
"We recall the first community of Jerusalem:   'They held steadfastly ... to the breaking of the bread' (Acts 2:42).  From the outset it is the Eucharist which becomes the centre and pattern of the life of the Church."

"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
to Mme Antoinette de Grandville
July 4, 1859

"We have Him so near in the Blessed Sacrament,
where He is already glorified and
where we don't have to gaze upon Him as being
so tired and worn out, bleeding, wearied by His journeys,
persecuted by those for whom He did so much good,
and not believed in by the Apostles . . . .
Behold Him here without suffering,
full of glory ...
strengthening some, encouraging others,
our companion in the most Blessed Sacrament."

St. Teresa of Avila
