Grace of The Eucharist
Anyone who has received communion for many months or years without being changed inwardly and outwardly has not brought to the holy table the openness and childlike simplicity that is blessed by our Savior. This renewal is independent of all conscious consolation and exterior joy; the loving sense of Jesus Christ's Real Presence is a grace sometimes given to us, but it does not necessarily contribute to our spiritual progress. It is one thing to love God and another thing actually to feel the joy of his presence.
