Eucharistic Quotes


"Jesus taught a new sacrifice which the Church received from the Apostles and offers throughout the whole world."

- St. Irenaeus (d. 202)

The womb of Our Immaculate Mother Mary is
"wholly untouched, not dug nor sown, from heaven's dew alone, it brings forth a Savior, and provides mortal men with the Bread of angels and the food of eternal life,"

- St. Irenaeus

"Just as bread from the earth, when it receives the invocation of God, is no longer common bread but the Eucharist, made up of two elements, one earthly and one heavenly, so also our bodies, in receiving the Eucharist, are no longer corruptible, for they have the hope of resurrection,"

- St. Irenaeus

"How could our flesh not partake of eternal life: 'since it is
nourished by the flesh and blood of the Lord and is a member of his body' (Adversus
Haeres 5, 2).

- St. Ireneus
