Eucharistic Reflections (Conference Notes)


·        Receive Holy Communion as often as you can. St. Dominic Savio


·        Receive Communion often, very often … there you have the

sole remedy. If you want to be cured. St. Therese of Lisieux.


·        Get closer to the Eucharist and to Jesus ..

We must pray to Jesus to give us that tenderness of the Eucharist.

St. Teresa of Calcutta


·       The Eucharist is the heart of the Church.

Where Eucharistic life flourishes, there the life of the Church will blossom. Pope John Paul II.


·       The Eucharist is the supreme proof of the love of Jesus.

After this there is nothing more but heaven itself . St. Peter Julian Eymard.
