“Go with Him”
St Ephrem of Syria (306-373)
Father and Doctor of the Church
“Go with Him, as His inseparable companion, to the wedding feast of Cana and drink of the wine of His blessing.
Let you have ever before you, the Face of the Lord and look upon His beauty and let your earnest gaze, turn nowhere away from His most sweet countenance.
Go before Him into a desert place and see the wonder of His works, where He multiplied in His own Holy Hands, the bread that sufficed the great multitude.
Go, my brother, go forward and with all the love of your soul, follow Christ wherever He may go… And lovingly behold Him as taking bread into His hands, He blesses it and breaks it, as the outward form of His own Immaculate Body and the chalice which He blessed, as the outward form of His Precious Blood and gave to His Disciples and be you also a partaker of His sacraments.”
