Embracing the summit...

"Let us not be satisfied with a mediocre life." - Pope Francis

 "The Eucharist is the summit of God's saving action: 
the Lord Jesus, by becoming bread broken for us,
pours upon us all of His mercy and His love,
so as to renew our hearts, our lives,
and our way of relating with Him and with the brethren. 
It is for this reason that commonly, when we approach this Sacrament,
we speak of 'receiving Communion,' of 'taking Communion':
this means that by the power of the Holy Spirit, participation in
Holy Communion conforms us in a singular and profound way to Christ,
giving us a foretaste already now of the full communion with the Father
that characterizes the heavenly banquet, where together with all the Saints
we will have the joy of contemplating God face to face."

Pope Francis
