Spirituality: The Eucharist

There is an entire spirituality, and Christology, in the four eucharistic words: receive, give thanks, break, share.

My belief in the eucharist is simple: without touch, God is a monologue, an idea, a philosophy; he must touch and be touched, the tongue on the flesh, and that touch is the result of monologues, the idea, the philosophies which led to faith, bu in the instant of touch there is no place for thinking, for talking, the silent touch affirms all that, and goes deeper.
