St. Teresa of Avila Eucharistic Quotes:

One day St. Teresa of Avila heard someone say: "If only I had lived at the time of Jesus... If only I had seen Jesus... If only I had talked with Jesus..."

To this she responded: "But do we not have in the Eucharist the living, true and real Jesus present before us? Why look for more?"

"In the presence of Jesus in the Holy Sacrament we ought to be like the Blessed in heaven before the Divine Essence,"

- St. Teresa of Avila
