The amazing gift of Jesus' Eucharistic Presence goes beyond words, but as the back cover of this book states, "Science falters and poetry fails when we try to speak of the Eucharist, but across the centuries saints, theologians and ordinary Catholics have found words to express the inexpressible: Jesus, fully present, Body, Blood, soul and divinity, offers himself to humanity in this sacrament."
I wanted to include a short reflection from the book. I had a hard time choosing just one because they are all so beautiful and rich in their depth of meaning. I finally decided on a reflection by St. John Chrysostom. I think sometimes we forget the presence of the angels at Mass. St. John Chrysostom's brief reflection from his Ascension Homily is a beautiful reminder of the presence of these heavenly beings at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
