Eucharistic Reflection - Poor, Blind and Miserable Creatures

(Image source: Wikimedia Commons)

One day, when I was assisting at the Holy Sacrifice, I saw an immense number of Holy Angels descend and gather around the altar, contemplating the priest. They sang heavenly canticles that ravished my heart; Heaven itself seemed to be contemplating the great Sacrifice. And yet we poor blind and miserable creatures assist at Mass with so little love, relish and respect.

(St Bridget from All About Angels)
