During a brief period in the life of St. Bonaventure, the saint's humility sometimes prevented him from receiving the Holy Eucharist--this despite his great desire to communicate. But his fears were completely overcome one day, as is recorded in the acts of his canonization:

"Several days had passed, nor durst he yet presume to present himself at the heavenly banquet. But whilst he was hearing Mass and meditating on the Passion of Jesus Christ, Our Saviour, to crown his humility and love, put into his mouth by the ministry of an angel part of the consecrated Host, taken from the hand of the priest. "
