Being made terrible to the devil...

"The Eucharist is a fire that inflames us, that, 
like lions breathing fire, we may retire from the altar 
being made terrible to the devil."- St John Chrysostom

"Consider at whose table thou eatest!
For we are fed with that which the angels view with trepidation
and which they cannot contemplate without fear because of Its splendor.

We become one with Him:
we become one Body and one Flesh with Christ."

"The bee is honored more than other animals, 
not because she labors, but because 
she labors for others.”  ~ St John Chrysostom

St John Chrysostom, pray for us!
