"One who has hope, lives differently." - Pope Benedict XVI
"If the poison of pride is swelling in you, turn to the Eucharist;
and that Bread, Which is God humbling and disguising Himself,
will teach you humility.
If the fever of selfish greed rages in you, feed on this Bread;
and you will learn generosity.
If the cold wind of coveting withers you, hasten to the Bread
of Angels; and charity will come to blossom in your heart.
If you feel the itch of intemperance, nourish yourself with
the Flesh and Blood of Christ, Who practiced heroic self-control
during His earthly life; and you will become temperate.
If you are lazy and sluggish about spiritual things,
strengthen yourself with this heavenly Food; and you will grow fervent.
Lastly, if you feel scorched by the fever of impurity,
go to the banquet of the Angels; and the
spotless Flesh of Christ will make you pure and chaste.
St Cyril of Alexandria
