Eucharistic Reflection - And So It Will Be With Us!

“Even after three years of close companionship with Jesus, the apostles noticed no striking change in each other, and little in themselves. Yet Jesus saw a steady transformation going forward, and He rejoiced. He saw how the love of Himself, which brings with it all good, was gradually raising their standards; was widening, purifying, and kindling their hearts; and preparing the material for fire which at Pentecost was to descend upon them and transform them into other men. Slowly and quietly, as is the way with the works of God, the apostles grew into the knowledge of the likeness of the Son of God, until each in his measure of capacity, and according to God's plan for him I became alter Christus  — another Christ. So it will be with us.”

(Attributed to Mother Mary Loyola in The Blessed Sacrament Prayer Book)
