Voice of pope Benedict XVI, Sacramentum Caritatis




(Exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis)

Jesus Christ, who «through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God» (Heb:14), makes us, in the gift of the Eucharist, sharers in God’s own life. This is an absolutely free gift, the superabundant fulfilment of God’s promises. The Church receives, celebrates and adores this gift in faithful obedience. The «mystery of faith» is thus a mystery of trinitarian love, a mystery in which we are called by grace to participate. We too should therefore exclaim with Saint Augustine: «If you see love, you see the Trinity.»
