Eucharistic Reflection - So Near

If our nature or health doesn't allow us to think always about the Passion, since to do so would be arduous, who will prevent us from being with Him in His risen state? 

We have Him so near in the Blessed Sacrament, where He is already glorified and where we don't have to gaze upon Him as being so tired and worn out, bleeding, wearied by His journeys, persecuted by those for whom He did so much good...Certainly there is no one who can endure thinking all the time about the many trials He suffered. Behold Him here without suffering, full of glory...our companion in the most Blessed Sacrament.

(Saint Teresa of Avila from Interior Castle)
