Keeping Your Spiritual Diet Healthy: How the Eucharist Can Help

“You are what you eat”. This old saying has been used many times, often to encourage a healthy diet. However a blog I found today called Catholic Sistas gave me a new outlook on the old saying. The author Erika talked in her post titled, “You Are What You Eat”, about how at a recent Mass the priest used this saying during his homily. He stated, “You are what you eat in most instances, but not with the Eucharist”, and explained that, “while we transform our regular food, the Eucharist transforms us”. I thought this was such a powerful, moving, and cleverly constructed statement. The post goes on to describe how keeping your spiritual diet healthy is beneficial. I am very glad to have found Catholic Sistas and you should all check out this post as soon as possible!
