The Feast of Corpus Christi

Our spiritual life cannot subsist without Jesus. And yet Jesus is truly with us, in the Eucharist. St. Teresa of Jesus wrote the following about the Eucharist: "Certainly, I think that if we were to approach the most Blessed Sacrament with great faith and love, once would be enough to leave us rich. How much richer from approaching so many times as we do. The trouble is we do so out of routine, and it shows. O miserable world, you have so covered the eyes of those who live in you that they do not see the treasures by which they could win everlasting riches!" ~ Meditations on the Song of Songs (Chapter 3)

May our reception of this Most Holy Sacrament never be just out of routine!
