And Elias, the prophet, stood up, as a fire, and his word burnt like a torch (Ecclesiasticus. 48.1, DRV)

Our Greatest Treasure: The Holy Eucharist


"It would hardly be an exaggeration to say, that from the contemplation of the Blessed Sacrament alone we could draw all that we know of God's goodness and dispositions towards us. If we seek for a disclosure of His love, where shall we find it more strikingly or more touchingly than in the Blessed Sacrament? He loved us 'to the end,' as St. John the 'Beloved' says when he speaks of the institution of the Holy Eucharist, not to the end of His life only, but... to the end of the possibilities of the divine liberality, to the farthest end that love could go, even His love who was God as well as Man.

It is not only gifts and graces which He gives us here, but He is Himself the Gift, Himself the Grace. Calvary was not enough. The seven Blood-shedding fell short of His merciful intent. Our ingratitude does not hinder Him. We have spurned His Cross and crucified Him afresh. We have trampled His Blood beneath our feet, and mixed it up with the mire of sin. Now, we shall have another mystery in which we may still outrage Him, while He still keeps wooing us to His love." - Fr. F.W. Faber

Thursday, the day the Holy Church traditionally dedicates to the special honor of Our Eucharistic Lord on His holy altar.

In the sanctuary have I come before Thee, to see Thy power and Thy glory (Ps. 62.3, DRV)

Salvation is in the "Blood of the Lamb"

Apocalypse XIV now unfolding (cf., our posts "The Wine of the Wrath of God" and "After Pope Benedict XVI, the 'Last' Roman Pontiff?"). The divine chastisement of world-wide conflagration (Lk. 17.29-30, cf., our post "Our Lady, Vatican II Disorientation, and the Annihilation of Many Nations") to annihilate the 'super-power' and cities and nations drunk with the wine of its immodesty, impurity, fornication, homosexuality, and blasphemies (Apoc. 14.8) is imminent - the close of our end-times period (distinct from the consummation of the world, Mt. 28.20).

They... have made them white in the Blood of the Lamb
(Apoc. 7.14) ... All things... are cleansed with Blood: and without shedding of Blood there is no remission (Heb. 9.22).

The Blood of the [Divine] Lamb can be availed of in the traditional Rite of the Sacrament of Penance (cf., our post "On Concealing Sins in Confession") and of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist (the Traditional Latin Mass). Go to our traditional Catholic Mass Centers (links on the left-side bar of this site). Flee to the mountains... (Mt. 24.16).
