" "Neither earth nor rock could have held the Cross, nor could the Cross of nails have held God’s only-begotten Son, had not love held him fast.” – St. Catherine of Siena

Eucharistic Reflection - Imagine No Son

(Image source: Wikimedia Commons)
In order to understand what the world of souls would be without the Eucharist, we have only to imagine what the material world would be without the sun that gives it light and life. Without the sun, all things would be wrapped in a dense and unendurable darkness like that of the blind, no seed would ever sprout, no flower would ever bloom, and no fruit would ever ripen. 

The Eucharist is the sun of souls. Without it, deprived of light for the spirit and warmth for the heart, souls would promptly lose their vital energy; and the germs of sanctity, the flowers of virtue, and the fruits of perfection would be seared.

(From The Holy Eucharist by Father Jose Guadalupe Trevino)
