“You must receive through love that which Love alone caused to be given to you. No, you cannot consider our Saviour in an action more full of love or more tender than this.  In it, He abases Himself, if we may so express it, and changes Himself into food, so that He may penetrate our souls and unite Himself most intimately to the heart and to the body of His faithful.” – Saint Francis de Sales

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: “The Chalice (of gold, silver and precious jewels) and the luminous Host, symbols of Salvation, are surrounded by an excessive amount of wheat and grapes of different types. Rare fruit of all kinds, large plums, peaches, cherries, oranges, lemons, and others in fine condition and state of ripeness together with hanging garlands, individual blooms, leaves, tendrils are all delicately painted as decoration and adornment. The lower plants, farther away from the light of heaven, droop and wilt.” (Image Description adapted from ‘Idle Speculations’)
