"In the Eucharist, Jesus is not only giving us His whole self, meaning his whole person, He is also giving us his love—indeed his unconditional love, that is love that cannot be exceeded." —Fr. Robert Spitzer
In this clip from EWTN's Father Spitzer's Universe, Father Spitzer explains the quote above, namely why the self-sacrificial nature of Eucharistic love makes it the only love that can save and forgive sins. He also explains why Jesus gives his body and blood separately in this ultimate act of love.
