 Holy Eucharist teachings - The Work of God Apostolate

111  Saint  St. Thomas Aquinas

"Godhead here in hiding, whom I adore
Masked by these bare shadows, shape and nothing more,
See, Lord, at thy service low lies here a heart
Lost, all lost in wonder at the God thou art." 

127  Saint  Thomas Aquinas, Verbum Supernum

"Being born he have himself as our Companion,
Eating with us he gave himself as Food,
Dying He became our Ransom,
Reigning he gives himself as our Reward" 

159  Saint  Thomas Aquinas

"Here 'neath veils, my Saviour darkly I behold;
To my thirsting spirit all thy light unfold;
Face to face in heaven let me come to thee,
And the blessed vision of thy glory see." 

164  Saint  Thomas Aquinas

"Jesus Lord, kind Pelican,
Cleanse my filth with Thy blood,
One drop of which can save
The whole world from all its sin." 

191  Saint  Thomas Aquinas

"The Sacrament of the Body of the Lord puts the demons to flight, defends us against the incentives to vice and to concupiscence, cleanses the soul from sin, quiets the anger of God, enlightens the understanding to know God, inflames the will and the affections with the love of God, fills the memory with spiritual sweetness, confirms the entire man in good, frees us from eternal death, multiplies the merits of a good life, leads us to our everlasting home, and re-animates the body to eternal life." 

197  Saint  Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae

"It is appropriate that the Body and Blood of Christ be truly present in this Sacrament, because of the perfection of the New Covenant. The sacrifices of the Old Covenant contained the true sacrifice of Christ's Passion only in symbol."
