Eucharist: life of the world! ...

  “Society will again someday become Christian won to Jesus Christ 
by the apostolate of Eucharistic Prayer.”  -  St Peter Julian Eymard

“The spread of the Eucharistic Kingdom of Christ is necessary for the salvation of society. The Eucharist is the life not only of the individual Christian, but of nations as well.  We know well that an age flourishes or degenerates in accordance with its worship of the divine Eucharist.  It is the life and measure of its faith, charity, and virtue. 
The Eucharist is not only for personal piety; it is essential to social life, for it is the very life of the world. We must take Christ from the solitude of His tabernacle, so that He may place Himself at the head of Christian society, to guide and save it.  We must build stately palaces, royal thrones, organize a court of faithful servants, a family of friends and a host of adorers and apostles.  Such a public and solemn protestation of our faith in the kingship of Christ, in the reality of His sacramental presence is a prime necessity of our day.”

St. Peter Julian Eymard
France ~ 1811-1868
Founder of Congregation of
Priests of the Blessed Sacrament (1856)

To be possessed by Jesus and to possess Him -
that is the perfect reign of Love." - St Peter Julian Eymard
