Compare Reading the Scriptures With Eating the Eucharist...

Please support the mission of

the Dominican Friars.

 

"...it was Jerome, ever straightforward and forceful, who compared reading the Scriptures with eating the Eucharist: "In reading the Bible the Fathers did not read the texts, but the living Christ, and Christ spoke to them. They consumed the Word with the Eucharistic bead and wine, and the Word offered itself to them with the profundity of Christ" and "I believer that the Gospel is the body of Christ...and the Scriptures, the divine doctrine, are truly the body and blood of Christ."
