Hearing, Seeing, and Touching

August 9, 2015

I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world. (John 6:51)

“There are three intimacies in life: hearing, seeing, and touching. Our first contact with anyone who loves us is to hear his voice, our second is to see him, the third, and the most intimate, is the privilege of touch. We hear of Christ in the Scriptures; we see Him by the eyes of faith; we touch Him in the Eucharist.”  (Archbishop Fulton J Sheen)
