The Effects of Holy Communion

“Each time you and I receive holy communion, we should expect a new propulsion of love for God to break forth from the depths of our souls, and we should be on the lookout for it.” – Fr. James Brent, O.P.


The Real Presence

“The Eucharist makes the presence of Jesus with us a permanent one.” – Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen


Meeting Jesus in the Eucharist

“Although I was raised Catholic and had gone to CCD every year of my childhood and adolescence, I realized that I had been catechized, not evangelized. I had been taught all of the Church’s many teachings, but I had never been introduced to Jesus “one-to-one,” as Mother Teresa says.”- Carrie Miller


The Eucharistic Sacrifice

“The essence of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ is simply the offering of himself out of love and obedience to the Father, but the manner in which he offers himself and the conditions under which he does so vary.” – Fr. James Brent, O.P.


The Heavenly Bread

“Though our weeks might be busy and our schedules might be full, the real reason to live is on Sunday. The real reason to live is the Eucharist.” – Fr. James Brent, O.P.


Solemnity of Corpus Christi

“The solemnity of the Corpus Domini [Body of the Lord] is not just the simple memorial of a historical event which took place almost two thousand years ago at the Last Supper; rather, it recalls us to the ever-present reality of Jesus always living in our midst.” – Fr. Gabriel of Saint Mary Magdalen
