Pope Benedict XVI on the Power of the Eucharist

Benedict XVI celebrating the Mass
The Eucharist is at the root of every form of holiness, and each of us is called to the fullness of life in the Holy Spirit. How many saints have advanced along the way of perfection thanks to their eucharistic devotion! … Holiness has always found its center in the sacrament of the Eucharist. This most holy mystery thus needs to be firmly believed, devoutly celebrated and intensely lived in the Church.
— Pope Benedict XVI

Prayer in Honor of the Body and Blood of Christ 

Almighty God, who in this wonderful Sacrament has left us a memorial of your Passion, grant us, we pray, so to revere the sacred mysteries of your Body and Blood that we may always experience in ourselves the fruits of your redemption. Who reign with the Father, and with the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever. Amen.
