Eucharistic Contemplation

At the Shrine of Mary (Annai Velangkanni) in Medan, Sumatra, IndonesiaTo ask for the grace of Christian contemplation is to ask that the bandage of pride, which still covers the eyes of the spirit, may fall away completely in order that we may be able to truly penetrate and taste the great mysteries of salvation: that of the sacrifice of the Cross perpetuated by the Mass, that of the sacrament of the Eucharist, the food of our soul.
Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange OP (1877–1964)
