Pope John XXIII once spoke about communion by saying, "In this world of ours, every believer must be a spark of light, a center of love, a vivifying ferment for the mass; and it will be that all the more as, in the depths of his being, he lives in communion with God." Charles Spurgeon, an intelligent British clergyman, once spoke of communion by saying, "We have communion with Christ in His thoughts, views, and purposes; for His thoughts are our thoughts according to our capacity and sanctity. Believers take the same view of matters as Jesus does; that which pleases Him pleases them, and that which grieves His grieves them also." Pope Shenouda III has also spoken highly of communion by saying, "As temples of the Holy Spirit. we should have communion with the Holy Spirit.
