“CHere on earth, it’s impossible to perform a more meritorious act than visiting Jesus often in the Eucharist. If you took all of the good works done by all of the humans who have ever lived in all of history and stacked them all up and multiplied them by a million, they wouldn’t equal the merit, the virtue, and the worth of one Mass. The Eucharistic sacrifice is Christ’s infinite merit, infinite value.” – St Teresa of Avila
