For my dear friend who worries that she spends to much time writing about the Eucharist

"How many Catholics have walked away from the Church and never come back because they really didn't know what they are losing They really do not understand the grace, the wonder, the power, the beauty, the love in that piece of bread that has become the body of the Living God and that cup of wine that has become His blood offered up for us in sacrifice."

His Eminence Theodore Cardinal McCarrick, Homily at 2004 Congress of the Eucharist.
