Blessed Katherine Drexel Eucharistic Quotes:
- From the writings of Blessed Katherine Drexel, the first Sister of the Blessed Sacrament:
"My sweetest Joy is to be in the presence of Jesus in the holy Sacrament. I beg that when obliged to withdraw in body, I may leave my heart before the holy Sacrament. How I would miss Our Lord if He were to be away from me by His presence in the Blessed Sacrament!"
"The Eucharist is a never-ending sacrifice. It is the Sacrament of love, the supreme love, the act of love."
"Christ wishes the Christian Community to be a body that is perfect because we work together towards a single end, and the higher the motive which actuates this collaboration the higher, no doubt, will be the union. Now the end in question is supremely exalted: the continuous sanctification of the Body for the glory of God and the Lamb that was slain [Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament]."
