The Greatest Sacrament
"Absolutely speaking, the sacrament of the Eucharist is the greatest of all the sacraments.... First of all, because it contains Christ Himself substantially: whereas the other sacraments contain a certain instrumental power which is a share of Christ's power.... For all the sacraments seem to be ordained to this one as their end."
~St. Thomas Aquinas
Summa Theologica, Ia, Q. 68, Art. 3
