Terrible and Awesome Nature of the Eucharist

If we understood the terrible and awesome nature of the Eucharist, we would die of fear for just being in the same physical reality as Him. And yet, we don’t understand.
“it is a communion host that has been consecrated”
The above sentence is so blatantly ignorant of the Truth that even proper capitalization and punctuation cannot even begin to come close to the Reality we will spend eternity contemplating if we are so fortunate as to persevere to the end in accepting our utter and profound lowliness.

We cannot sense His Presence through nature, just as His Presence wasn’t sensed when we crucified Him. None but His Mother truly intimately knew Him finitely, until She began to intimately Know Him infinitely.

O Blessed John, the virgin who was so favoured as to act as the Son in placing the Virgin's Son within the Virgin's lips.
