I want to thank Mark Pickup for his article, "Christ reveals his body and the image of God to our senses" (WCR, Feb. 3).

His article has a smell of heaven. All through his message, we can grasp the spiritual life which sustains him in his journey of faith. His heart is totally focused on the real presence who is Jesus among us.

His faith in the real presence is steadfast and profound. Thank you, Mark, for your testimony of your constant and pure faith.

Your life speaks aloud of how much the Blessed Sacrament can nourish a soul and how your life is rooted in Christ. As you say, "Ordinary people in the world are not ordinary." This is so because we are made in the image of God.
