The Sacraments are the fifth candle on the Menorah lighting our way in the Holy of Holies. They are one of God's greatest gifts to all humanity. In the Sacraments we have a physical connection between God and man. During the celebration of the Eucharist the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ through which we receive Life.
For Contemplatives feasting on the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ is the foundation to their walk with God, the pinnacle of each week, the delight of their life. It is not only transformative at that moment, we carry that Presence with us in all that we do and wherever we may go.
In the Sacraments God comes most near to me. In the Presence of the Sacrament I am most near to God.
