What God’s Son has told me, take for truth I do;
Truth Himself speaks truly or there’s nothing true.

In this painting, Raphael has created a scene spanning both heaven and earth. Above, Christ is surrounded by the Blessed Virgin Mary, John the Baptist and various biblical figures such as Adam, Moses and Jacob. God the Father sits above Jesus, depicted reigning over the golden light of heaven. Below, on the altar sits the monstrance (ostensorium).
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, "Take and eat;
this is my body."
Matthew 26:26
While they were eating, he took bread, said the blessing, broke
it, and gave it to them, and said, "Take it; this is my body."
Mark 14:22
Then he took the bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave
it to them, saying, "This is my body, which will be given for
you; do this in memory of me."

1 Corinthians 11:24
"Indeed, this is the will of My Father, that everyone who
looks upon the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal
life. Him, I will raise up on the last day."
John 6:40
"The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease."
Pope John Paul II, Dominicae cenae
"That in this sacrament are the true Body of Christ and his true Blood is something that ‘cannot be apprehended by the senses,’ says St. Thomas, ‘but only by faith, which relies on divine authority.’ For this reason, in a commentary on Luke 22:19 St. Cyril says: ‘Do not doubt whether this is true, but rather receive the words of the Savior in faith, for since he is the truth, he cannot lie.’"
Catechism of the Catholic Church, Part 2, Sec. 2, Ch.1, Art. 3, No. 1381
Adoro te devote
Godhead here in hiding, whom I do adore
Masked by these bare shadows,
shape and nothing more,
See, Lord, at thy service low lies here a heart
Lost, all lost in wonder at the God thou art.

Seeing, touching, tasting are in thee deceived;
How says trusty hearing that shall be believed;
What God’s Son has told me, take for truth I do;
Truth himself speaks truly or there’s nothing true.
St. Thomas Aquinas (attr.), tr. Gerard Manley Hopkins
"Mary lead us to the Eucharist"
    "Hail, Jesus, Son of Mary, in the sacred Host
                                           you are the true God."
Pope John Paul II
"Eucharistic adoration is the greatest of actions. To adore is to share the life of Mary on earth when she adored the Word Incarnate in her virginal womb, when she adored Him in the Crib, on Calvary, in the divine Eucharist."
St. Peter Julian Eymard
"Loving souls can find no greater delight than to be in the company of those whom they love. If we, then, love Jesus Christ much, behold we are now in his presence. Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament sees us and hears us; shall we, then, say nothing to Him? Let us console ourselves in His company; let us rejoice in His glory, and in the love which so many enamoured souls bear Him in the Most Holy Sacrament. Let us desire that all should love Jesus in the Holy Sacrament, and consecrate their hearts to Him...."
St. Alphonsus Liguori
Madonna Tempi by Raphael; 1508; Alte Pinakothek, Munich

Each time we visit Jesus in the Eucharist we enrich our spiritual life. Each moment we look upon the Blessed Sacrament with faith, he raises us up into a deeper union with Himself and will make our souls everlasting more glorious in heaven; for union with Jesus is our calling and vocation in life and our eternal happiness for ever in heaven.
