Quote of the Day (St. John Fisher, on the Mass as the ‘Spiritual Sun’)

"The Mass is the spiritual sun which rises every day to spread its light and heat to all souls."—St. John Fisher (1469-1535), quoted in R. Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P., The Priest in Union with Christ, translated by Rev. G. W. Shelton, S.T.L. (1954)
