Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day.” Consider also the words of St. Teresa of Avila, “Without the Holy Mass, what would become of us? All here below would perish, because that alone can hold back God’s arm.” (Jesus, Our Eucharistic Love, by Fr. Stefano M. Manelli, FI; p. 15) and St. Pio: “It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do so without the Holy Mass.”|
