Esca Viatorum - Food of Travellers

LET US BE CONTENT to think of the Blessed Sacrament not as the medicine but as the food of our souls; acting on us, as material food does, without our knowing it, yet all the time sufficing for the day's needs, carrying us along on our journey, though we seem to make such a weary business of it, dragging foot after foot. The invalid who refuses food because it has so little relish for him becomes a worse invalid yet.

- Ronald A. Knox
