St. Francis Borgia, S.J. And The Holy Eucharist

Joseph at Good Jesuit, Bad Jesuit has posted this today, and I direct the reader there.

The strength which this divine food infuses into the soul for rising superior to human respect, is not less admirable. Whence did the saints derive that heroic fortitude by which they disregarded all human considerations, but by frequently approaching the Sacramental Table, whence they departed defying the world and its threats, to detach them by all it could say and do from their dear Lord ? And this was not alone in the rude and simple people, but in the rich and noble, and even in princes and emperors themselves. more...

Thanks and a tip of the beret to Joseph.
