This reminded me of J. R. R. Tolkien’s love of the Blessed Sacrament from J. R. R. Tolkien’s Sanctifying Myth:
For Tolkien, nothing represented a greater gift from God than the actual Body and Blood of Christ. “I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament,” Tolkien wrote to his son Michael. “There you will find romance, glory, honor, fidelity and the true way of all your loves upon earth.”
Tolkien once experienced a holy vision while praying before the Blessed Sacrament. “I perceived or thought of the Light of God and in it suspended one small mote (or millions of motes to only one of which was my small mind directed), glittering white because of the individual ray from the Light which both held.”
Tolkien also witnessed his guardian angel in the vision, not as a go-between but as the personalization of “God’s very attention.”
Truly, if people only knew the incredible, ineffable beauty of the Blessed Sacrament, they’d drop all contrary beliefs and give up their worldly ideas to have one moment’s experience of it.
