Strength and direction
"The Eucharist not only provides the interior strength needed for this mission, but is also —in some sense—its plan. For the Eucharist is a mode of being, which passes from Jesus into each Christian, through whose testimony it is meant to spread throughout society and culture.
"For this to happen, each member of the faithful must assimilate, through personal and communal meditation, the values which the Eucharist expresses, the attitudes it inspires, the resolutions to which it gives rise.
"Can we not see here a special charge which could emerge from this Year of the Eucharist?"
John Paul II, Apostolic Letter Mane Nobiscum Domine, 25
