2: “In reality, Clare’s whole life was a Eucharist because from her cloister she raised up a continual ‘thanksgiving’ to God in her prayer, praise, supplication, intercession, weeping, offering and sacrifice. She accepted everything and offered it to the Father in union with the infinite ‘thanks’ of the only-begotten Son.” - Bl. John Paul II

4: Place your mind before the mirror or eternity! Place your soul in the brilliance of glory! (cf Heb 1:3) Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance! (cf Heb 1:3) And transform your whole being into the image of the Godhead Itself through contemplation! So that you too may feel what His friends feel As they taste the hidden sweetness (cf Ps 30:20) Which God Himself has reserved From the beginning

9: “In your lives of prayer, moreover, Christ’s praise of his Eternal Father goes on. The totality of his love for his Father and of his obedience to the Father’s will is reflected in your radical consecration of love. His selfless immolation for his Body, the Church, finds expression in the offering of your lives in union with his sacrifice.” - Bl. John Paul II

18: In all their celebrations, men have always searched for that life which is greater than death Eucharist means that the Lord’s Resurrection gives us this joy which no one else canLiturgy addresses the human being in all his depth, which goes far beyond our everyday awareness; there are things we only understand with the heart; the mind can gradually grow in understanding the more we allow our heart to illuminate it. – Pope Benedict XVI

23: The Body and Blood of Christ are given to us so that we ourselves will be transformed in our turn. We are to become the Body of Christ, his own Flesh and Blood. We all eat the one bread, and this means that we ourselves become one. In this way, adoration becomes union. God no longer simply stands before us as the One who is totally Other. He is within us, and we are in Him. – Pope Benedict XVI
