Love revived! ...

No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. 
No one who continues to sin has either seen him
or known him. - I John 3:6

"As bodily nourishment restores lost strength,
so the Eucharist strengthens our charity, 
which tends to be weakened in daily life; and this living charity 
wipes away venial sins (Cf. Council of Trent). 

By giving Himself to us Christ revives our love
and enables us to break our disordered
attachments to creatures and root ourselves in him (…).”

Catechism of the Catholic Church (#1394)*

*The Catechism is bounding with beauty, truth and goodness regarding the Eucharist.  Perhaps a fruitful exercise
during Lent would be to discover and meditate on these gems!
