"It is the Lord!"

“A cloud of incense was rising on high; the people suddenly all bowed low; what could it mean?  The truth flashed on him, fearfully yet sweetly; it was the Blessed Sacrament – it was the Lord Incarnate who was on the altar, who had come to visit and bless His people.  It was the Great Presence, which makes a Catholic Church different from every other place in the world, which makes it, as no other place can be – holy.”

Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman,
