On the Eucharist

The bread is Christ’s body, the cup is Christ’s blood.  If you, therefore, are Christ’s body and members, it is your own mystery that is placed on the Lord ’s table!  It is your own mystery that you are receiving!  Be a member of Christ’s body, then, so that your Amen may ring true!  Be what you see; receive what you are.  All who fail to keep the bond of peace after entering this mystery receive not a sacrament that benefits them, but an indictment that condemns them. ~St. Augustine
