"The Eucharist is our most beautiful treasure.
It is the Sacrament par excellence; it ushers us into eternal life
in advance; it contains the entire mystery of our salvation;
it is the source and summit of the action and life of the Church..."
Pope Benedict XVI
The Mass is truly a 'hidden treasure'
and, alas, our cold, dead faith allows it to remain so.
If we valued it as we ought,
we would hurry every morning to the church,
careless of the snows of winter
and the heats of summer,
in order to get a share
of the riches of this treasure."
