Same Body broken, same Blood flowing...

  “Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, 
and the Eucharist in turn 
confirms our way of thinking.” – St Irenaeus

"The Mass is that which 
makes the cross visible to every eye
it placards the Cross at all the crossroads 
of civilization; it brings Calvary so close 
that even tired feet can make the journey 
to its sweet embrace; every hand may now 
reach out to touch its Sacred Burden, 
every ear may hear its sweet appeal, 
for the Mass and the Cross are the same.

In both there is the same offering of 
perfectly surrendered will of the beloved Son, 
same Body broken, the same Blood flowed 
forth, the same Divine Forgiveness.

All that has been said and done and acted 
during Holy Mass is to be taken away with us, 
lived, practiced, and woven into all the 
circumstances and conditions of our daily lives."
