2 Entries

If the soul does not incline toward good things, but rather toward evil, it is nourished by nothing but sin. The Holy Spirit, describing sinners and their food, alluded to the devil when He said, 'You gave him as food for the people of the wilderness' (Ps. 75:14, LXX). Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is heavenly bread, the food of the saints, as He said: 'Unless you eat My flesh and drink My blood' (John 6:53). St. Ignatius of Antioch
