Holy Eucharist Teachings by the Fathers of the Church
Fathers of the Church -  St John Chrysostom (c. 344 - 407 A.D.)

"Take care, then, lest you too become guilty of the Body and Blood of Christ [1 Cor 11:27]. They slaughtered His most holy body; but you, after such great benefits, receive Him into a filthy soul. For it was not enough for Him to be made Man, to be struck and to be slaughtered, but He even mingles Himself with us; and this not by faith only, but even in every deed He makes us His Body. How very pure, then, ought he not be, who enjoys the benefit of this Sacrifice?" (ibid 82:5)
