From the Eucharist comes strength to live the Christian life and zeal to share that life with others. - Pope John Paul II

The Eucharist bathes the tormented soul in light and love. Then the soul appreciates these words: Come all you who are sick, I will restore your health. - St. Bernadette Soubirous

The greatest love story of all time is contained in a tiny white Host. - Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
