Isaac Hecker Quote It cannot be too often repeated to the men of this generation, so many of whom are trying to banish and forget God, that God, and God alone, is the Creator and Renewer of the world. The same God who made all things, and who became man, and began the work of regeneration, is the same who really acts in the Church now upon men and society, and who has pledged His word to continue to do so until the end of the world. The Church and the Age, 1887

Weekly Reflection: In todays Gospel, Jesus says, Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. After receiving the Eucharist, you become a living tabernacle. How long does your radiance shine after receiving communion? What can you do to make it last longer?
