""You will eat Him," says Le Livre de Crainte Amoureuse of Jean Berthelemy, in speaking of the Eucharist, "roasted at the fire, well baked, not at all overdone or burnt. For just as the Easter lamb was properly baked and roasted between two fires of wood or of charcoal, thus was gentle Jesus on Good Friday placed on the spit of the worthy cross, and tied between the two fires of His very fearful death and passion, and of the very ardent charity and love which He felt for our souls and our salvation. He was, as it were, roasted and slowly baked to save us.""
