Eucharistic Reflection – Our Annex to Paradise

(Image Source: Wikimedia Commons)
"It is in our churches, in this tabernacle, that the living body of the Sav­ior rests. He was but nine months in the womb of Mary, three hours on the Cross, three days in the tomb. Yet he is always in our churches. This is why they do not empty of angels, archangels, and seraphim unceasingly adoring him. They adore him with signs of respect, with prostrations that, if we could perceive them, would strangely confound us. Our churches, if we might speak in such a way, are like an annex of paradise; there the Creator is adored, there the resurrected Savior finds a body and a soul, thereto the heavenly spirits journey, and there they delight in the same happiness savored beyond the firmament"

(St. Claude de la Colombiere from Christian Reflections)


  1. I heartily agree. Adoration is heavenly and helps us reach our destination.
