Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Heaven Kisses Earth

Not only does this give you a marvelous glimpse of Love Himself in the Most Blessed Sacrament, but it also is a great "tour" of the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament, home of the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration and Mother Angelica! The procession takes you through the beautiful columned nave, with the exquisite marble floor, and right up into the sanctuary.

Look for the "Sanctus" written on each of the three steps going up to the altar of the Lord! Sweet!

And check out the inscription on the INSIDE of the tabernacle door!! One of you in particular is going to really appreciate this special touch ;)

To the musically-inclined: don't you just love this version of "O Salutaris"? I've never heard it used before, actually.

O Sacrament Most Holy,
O Sacrament Divine
All praise and all thanksgiving
Be every moment Thine!
