Quote of the Week
August 27, 2017
[It is] a favorite idea of St. Thomas (Aquinas), that faith is truly a contact with Christ... Without this contact of faith, we are dead unto Christ, the stream of his life passes us by without entering into us, as a rock in the midst of a river remains unaffected by the turbulent waters... Till the contact of faith be established, the great redemption has not become our redemption; the things of Christ are not ours in any true sense.
Dom Anscar Vonier, A Key to the Doctrine of the Eucharist, 2013, p. 3
