Since Christ Himself has said, "This is My Body" who shall dare to doubt that It is His Body?

Scripture Verse of the Day
Lamentations 3:22-23
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

The Words of St. Escriva
You grew in the face of difficulties in the apostolate when you prayed: "Lord, You are the same as ever. Give me the faith of those men who knew how to correspond to your grace, who worked great miracles, real marvels, in your Name..." And you finished off: "I know that you will do it; but I also know that you want to be asked. You want to be sought out. You want us to knock hard at the doors of your Heart."

At the end you renewed your resolve to persevere in humble and trusting prayer.
(The Forge, #653)

Catholic Catechism #2177
