“…Now the new the old effaces;
Truth away the shadow chases,
Light dispels the gloom of night.
What he did at supper seated,
Christ ordained to be repeated,
His memorial ne’er to cease:
And his rule for guidance taking.
Bread and wine we hallow, making
Thus our sacrifice of peace.
This the truth each Christian learns,
Bread into his flesh he turns,
To his precious blood the wine:
Sight has fail’d, nor thought conceives,
But a dauntless faith believes,
Resting on a pow’r divine.”
Today is one of my favorite feasts in the Church, the feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. If you don’t know much about the Eucharist, you can find out about it here. I’m praying for all of you today. Have a beautiful day!
