Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. He waits for you in the ciborium, your Friend of yesterday; the Friend whose intimacy you have so often forgotten, and more than once have even betrayed. All that he has forgiven you, as a friend does . . . Your Friend yesterday – Your Friend today, when you are so little conscious of the need for such a friendship . . . His love, so little felt and so little realized, is strengthening itself in your heart, waiting for the day when you will need it more. Your Friend today, your Friend forever . . . His friendship will remain unaltered; His presence in the Blessed Sacrament will still wait for you, the same as ever . . . And at last when death comes, all earthly ties must slip away from you, even then this Friendship will be yours . . . Your Friend forever.
– Monsignor Ronald Knox
