Time stops... we touch eternity! ...

"Help me to recognize You as Your disciples did at the 
Breaking of the Bread, so that the Eucharistic Communion 
be the light which disperses the darkness, the power which 
sustains me, the unique joy of my heart." - St Pio of Pietrelcina

"Time stops and we touch eternity 
in this 'Sacrament of Love'. 
A love without limits, a love that is not 
afraid to give of oneself at the risk of being 
mocked, trampled, humiliated, crucified,
a love that like bread is given to 'eat',
the love of one who gives himself
at the risk of losing one’s own life."

Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal of Jerusalem
April 3, 2015, Homily
Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem
