"Eucharist [thanksgiving] is the state of the perfect man. Eucharist is the life of paradise. Eucharist is the only full and real response of man to God's creation, redemption, and gift of heaven."

April 21st: "Three Gifts Found In Christ"
(Happy Birthday, Tante...)
Had John 15 on the brain today as we worked outside in the yard....

John 15: 1-2
#333 Bearing fruit....

John 15: 5
