"Consider that in receiving this Divine Sacrament you have received the same body of Jesus, which was formed by the Holy Spirit from the most pure blood of Mary, which worked so many miracles, suffered so much fatigue and endured so much evil for us during His mortal life, and which is now glorious and is seated at the right hand of the Father in Heaven; this same blood of Jesus, which was shed from His infancy in the Circumcision and was shed in greater abundance and unto the last drop upon the altar of the Cross; this same soul of Jesus which from the moment of the Incarnation was full of grace, of wisdom, and of virtue, which surpasses the angels and the saints in every manner of perfection, which descended into Limbo and which has been raised glorious; this same Divinity of Jesus which created Heaven and earth, and which is in the Father and the Holy Spirit…”
