“With the words ‘Deo Gratias,” a great wave of thankfulness goes up to the Angels, who, as a parting gift, send back a fine stream in response. This is caught by the celebrant and poured out during the final benediction, along with the power and material of which the whole Eucharistic Edifice was constructed, which... dissolves into great streams of rushing force... spreading benediction wherever they go.” — Rt. Rev. C.W. Leadbeater, Late Presiding Bishop of The Liberal Catholic Church, The Science of the Sacraments.
