Woven round... like a robe...

"It is not sufficient to say that 
the Eucharist is at the center of the Church, 
because actually, the Eucharist makes the Church!  
It builds it from within 
and weaves it round itself like a robe. 

It is said that two sacraments in particular 
"make" the Church:  Baptism and the Eucharist.  

But whereas Baptism makes the Church grow quantitativelyas it were, in size and number, 
the Eucharist makes her grow qualitatively, 
in strength, because it transforms her ever more deeply 
into the image of Christ, her Head."
