“Everything came into being through the life-giving dynamic of the one who is Love. God is never-ending and unchanging. As it was then, it is now. This Trinity of Persons, the infinitude of love, seeks to share the life-giving dynamic of Their loving union with others—to “go outward” to others who will love back in the same self-donative way. This is gratuitous action on God’s part. Being the infinitude of love, the Divine Persons have no need of more love, but They seek to share with others Their divine pleasure. And so God created the heavens and the earth and beings with whom He might share His very life.”

“Let every knee bend before Thee, O greatness of my God, so supremely humbled in the Sacred Host. May every heart love Thee, every spirit adore Thee and every will be subject to Thee!”

— St. Margaret Mary

“Oh, how sweet and pleasant to that soul and to Me is holy prayer, made in the house of knowledge of self and of Me, opening the eye of the intellect to the light of faith, and the affections to the abundance of My charity, which was made visible to you, through My visible Only-begotten Son, who showed it to you with His blood! Which blood inebriates the soul and clothes her with the fire of divine charity, giving her the food of the Sacrament . . . that is to say, the food of the Body and Blood of My Son, wholly God and wholly man, administered to you by the hand of My vicar, who holds the key of the Blood.”

— St. Catherine of Siena
