Prayer: Francis of Assisi

Just as Christ appeared before the holy apostles in true flesh, so now he has us see him in the sacred bread. Looking at him with the eyes of their flesh, they saw only his flesh, but regarding him with the eyes of the spirit, they believed that he was God. As we see bread and wine with our bodily eyes, let us see and believe firmly that it is his most holy blood, true and living. Our Lord is ever present among those who believe in him.
