Quote on the Eucharist



Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I place before you the one great thing to love on earth: The Blessed Sacrament... There you will find romance, glory, honor, fidelity and the true way of all your loves upon earth, and more than that: Death: by the divine paradox, that which ends life, and demands the complete surrender of all, and yet by the taste of which alone can what you seek in your earthly relationships be maintained, or take on the complexity of reality, or eternal endurance, which every man's heart desires.
~ J.R.R. Tolkien in a letter to his son.

    We missed you at the show today... hope you're feeling better. I sent Teresa with a hug for you. :)

    Love,

  2. Ooo, I love that quote!!!! It is SO beautiful!

    Best wishes my dearest friend, I hope that you are feeling better soon! Did the girls give you the hug I sent?

    Much Love,
    Veronica

    P.S. Did you get my other comment on "Who am I?"

  3. Thank you, I am feeling much better! I got the hugs (after I convinced Teresa that I was feeling better and that she would not get "contaminiated".)
    Veronica, I did not get your other comment. Try again?

    Dear Amanda,

    Glad to see you got your lovely blog up and started. Love the name! And I agree that Veronica can definately not name a blog the Lady of the Fish. Because if she did, I don't think I could bring myself to read it. :)

    So glad to hear you're feeling better. I said a prayer for you yesterday, and sent a hug too, although I think I forgot to tell the girls to give it to you! So I sent my guardian angel with it.

    Blessings from a sister in Christ,
    Sarah

  5. I really like your quote on the Eucarist. It is very pretty. (even if it is from part of some person's letter.) And I am glad that you are feeling better. :)
