Living center of the universe...

What sublime humility and humble sublimeness that
the Lord of the Universe, the Divine Son of God,
should stoop as to hide Himself under the appearance of bread
for our salvation! - St Francis of Assisi

"It is in the Eucharist
that all that has been created 
finds its greatest exaltation. 

It is the living center of the universe,
the overflowing core of love and of inexhaustible life.
Joined to the incarnate Son present in the Eucharist
is itself an act of cosmic love. ...

The Eucharist joins heaven and earth;
it embraces and penetrates all creation.
Pope Francis
Laudato Si, 236
