Eucharistic Reflection - My Disguised King





“How could I, a poor sinner, who have so often offended You, dare to approach You, O Lord, if I beheld You in all your majesty? Under the appearance of bread, however, it is easy to approach You, for if a king disguises himself, it seems as if we do not have to talk to him with so much circumspection and ceremony. If you were not hidden, O Lord, who would dare to approach You with such coldness, so unworthily, and with so many imperfections?

(St. Teresa of Avila from The Way of Perfection)
