Adding an empowering, meaningful, or funny quote will spark the interests of your guests. Here are some quotes you can use to capture your guests attention.

“If we but paused for a moment to consider attentively

what takes place in this Sacrament,

I am sure that the thought of Christ’s love for us

would transform the coldness of our hearts

into a fire of love and gratitude.” – St. Angela of Foligno


“When the bee has gathered the dew of heaven and the earth’s sweetest

nectar from the flowers, it turns it into honey, then hastens to its hive.

In the same way, the priest, having taken from the altar the

Son of God (who is as the dew from heaven, and true son

of Mary, flower of our humanity), gives him to

you as delicious food.” – St. Francis de Sales

Whose goodness fails me never;

I nothing lack if I am His,

“For I received from the Lord what I also

passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he

was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks,

he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for

you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way,

after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the

new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever

you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this

bread and drink this cup, you proclaim

the Lord’s death until he comes.”

1 Corinthians 11:23-26


Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it,

and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.”

 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave

it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you; for this is my blood of the

covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

Matthew 26:26-28:


Behold, I stand at the door, and knock

If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20
