Eucharist is an act of thanksgiving, but also an act of giving grace.
No matter how much grace is offered to us in the sacraments, it will only be effective if we open ourselves up to it.
As uncomfortable as it is, Jesus chose only men to be priests because priests must be icons of Jesus.
We cannot believe in the Eucharist using reason alone. We must allow ourselves to believe the words of Jesus and have faith in them.
The Father points to Jesus, who is the source of salvation. Jesus, who is the Bread of Life, accompanies us on our way to the Father through the sacrament of viaticum.
We desired to offer ourselves to God, but since we could not, we offered animals instead. This act of sacrifice was holy. How much more so is the sacrifice of Christ?
The Eucharist is called the Body of Christ, Communion, the Bread of Angels, the Sacrament of Charity, The Most Holy Sacrament, and the Source and Summit of our Faith. What can each of these names tells us about this sacrament?
The Eucharist makes us more and more like Jesus, which means it ought to cause us to love our neighbor more and more.
