Thomas Tuesday

During the year of the Eucharist, Thomas can shed some light on how the Eucharist makes us holy:

"The effects of this sacrament ought to be considered, first of all and principally, from what is contained in this sacrament, which is Christ: who, just as by coming into the world, he visibly bestowed the life of grace upon the world, according to John 1:17: 'Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.' So also, by coming sacramentally into man, he causes the life of grace: 'He who eats me, the same shall live by me.' (Jn 6:58)"
