Rarely has there been more confusion and certainty than in our present day, and these miracles demonstrate how God tries to help us overcome our dark hours so we can proclaim with St. Thomas the Apostle, My Lord and my God.

Thank you for this article. I do not have the religious education some of you were graced with and articles such as this are a major source of edification for me.

(Acerbic by nature, not nurture)
Latin Eucharistic hymns, such as the Tantum ergo
The translation of this used in the 1940 Hymnal is such a wonderfully compact and poetic statement of this most basic of Christian truths, and to the nature of sacraments in general:
Therefore we before him bending,
This great sacrament revere.
Types and shadows have their ending,
For the newer rite is here.
Faith our outward sense befriending,
Makes our inward vision clear.
