“He invented the Eucharist: a God who makes Himself into bread, a little host, in order to descend onto our lips and into our hearts, to bridge all distance between Himself and us.

Love is exacting; love is absolute. So He instituted the sacrament which effects, between Him and us, more than a union, more than a fusion: the oneness of love. He wants us to become one with Him.”

~Fr Jean C.J. d’Elbée, I Believe in Love
