Be vivified by the body of Christ

September 10

“Our sensible appetites, inclined to sensuality and to sloth, need to be vivified by contact with the virginal body of Christ, who endured most frightful sufferings for love of us. We, who are always inclined to pride, to lack of consideration, to forgetfulness of the greatest truths, to spiritual folly, need to be illumined by contact with the sovereignty luminous intellect of the Savior, who is ‘the way, the truth, and the life.'”

-Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, The Three Ages of the Interior Life


Today’s Reflection:

What do we do if our faith in the Eucharist isn’t very alive? Make one resolution today that you will carry through this week to increase your love and devotion.
