No room for doubt...

"O Lord my God, I thank you for not rejecting me, a sinner,
and for deeming me worthy to be a partaker
of Your Holy Mysteries." - St Basil the Great

"There is no room for doubting
that Our Lord is in the Holy Eucharist.
One knows well that He is there. One feels it.

In receiving Holy Communion one feels something extraordinary,
a sense of well-being which pervades his whole body.
What is this sense of well-being? It is Our Lord who communicates Himself
to all parts of our bodies, and makes them thrill with joy.
We are compelled to cry out with St John:
'It is the Lord.' "

St John Vianney
