‘There is a religion of devotion, and a religion of commitment. Faith can be a crutch or a pair of wings. The Christian life is not about evasions, escapism, soft options, comfort. It is about the very opposite of these. The God who loves us, expects the best of us, nothing less. God gives us a special food to nourish us. The food that Elijah received enabled him to walk to the mountain of God. The food that Jesus gives us in the Eucharist enables us to walk all the way to his eternal kingdom. (Flor McCarthy SDB)
