Eucharist, a Stupendous Mystery!

What a stupendous mystery! In order to reach Christ, it is not necessary to reach back in time to the days of his earthly life, nor must we travel in space and cross the borders of Palestine. It is enough to enter a church, to draw near to a tabernacle: we find him there; we can speak to him; we can listen to his inspirations; we can adore him. My first words, in this meeting of ours, are meant as an invitation to join with all the other faithful who kneel before the Eucharist and worship it.
