Recipes for April ~ Month Dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament

Since Holy Thursday, the day on which we celebrate the institution of the Sacrament of Holy Communion at the Last Supper, usually falls in April, the Catholic Church dedicates this month to devotion to the Blessed Sacrament.

“The Eucharist is the supreme proof of the love of Jesus.   After this, there is nothing more but Heaven.” ~ St. Peter Julian Eymard

"When you have received Him, stir up your heart to do Him homage; speak to Him about your spiritual life, gazing upon Him in your soul where He is present for your happiness; welcome Him as warmly as possible, and behave outwardly in such a way that your actions may give proof to all of His Presence." ~ St. Francis de Sales

  1. Wonderful!

    I recently shared "Catholic Cuisine" with my women's group at church, and they are very excited to discover a site that gathers recipes and ideas to celebrate the liturgical year in their own domestic churches. So, thank you (again!) for this wonderful, collective site! It is such a treasure!

  2. I am hoping that our Lion Cake turns out as nice as the one shown here.
    Thanks for sharing!
