Are We All For Him?

“If the Blessed Sacrament is Jesus all for us, is it not the most legitimate of conclusions that we should be all for Him? We should be all for Jesus, if Jesus is our all.

And what does this mean?
Surely, among other things, that the Blessed Sacrament should be to us just the single overpowering fact of the world.
Our hands hold Him; our words make Him; our tongue rests Him; our body compasses Him; our souls feel Him; our flesh feeds upon Him, the Infinite, the Incomprehensible, the Immense, the Eternal.
Must not all life be looked at in this light, just as the whole Church lies in this light and has no other?”
(The Blessed Sacrament, by Fr. Frederick Faber)
