Still sharing on the 6th day of my retreat

This was the day on the Eucharist and I still want to share some of the quotes that mean much to me.

In our Constitutions of 1982, we speak of the Eucharist as really transforming us. "By receiving the Body of Christ, we unite ourselves to His prayer of thanksgiving and to His offering of Himself to the Father for the life of the world. 
Gradually, the Eucharist makes us become more truly Body of Christ, broken to give birth to a new humanity."

And in #37 we speak of the Eucharistic presence in our communities as a "constant reminder that Christ is the center of our life, inviting us to adore Him individually and in community. Through the Eucharist we are committed to live united among ourselves, to build communion in a divided and unjust world, and to give ourselves wholeheartedly to others."
