ALWAYS YOUNG, POWERFUL, EFFICACIOUS – FOR EVER!

ALWAYS YOUNG, POWERFUL, EFFICACIOUS – FOR EVER!

IN FINEM! FOR EVER!

Take ye and eat, for this is my Body which is given you, for today, tomorrow, and every day, even to the end. You will die, but the Eucharist will not die with you; you will leave it to the generations which will succeed you. The centuries will pass, one after another, but the Eucharist will remain, to console the dying, to nourish youth – for ever!

Always the same, always young, powerful, efficacious, always amiable, forceful, and vivifying; containing in itself the past, that is, Jesus the Eternal Word, and Jesus the Son of Mary – the present, the grace and supernatural life of the Church, – the future, that is, the glory of the reign of Christ, the seed of the resurrection, and the prize of a happy eternity – for ever!

– P. Tesnière
