Writing on the Lord’s gift of the Eucharist… “He could not have commanded anything more beneficial, for this Sacrament is the fruit of the tree of life. Anyone who receives this Sacrament with the devotion of sincere faith will never taste death. It is a tree of life for those who grasp it, and blessed is he who holds it fast. The man who feeds on Me shall live on account of Me.” (St. Albert the Great, Bishop, Confessor and Doctor of the Church)
The Optional Memorial of St. Albert the Great, Bishop and Doctor of the Church (1206 – 1280) is November 15.
