+314+ Eucharistic Prayer: Heart-to-Heart (Family Mass 4)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Jesus wanted to give his friends the very best, so He gave them himself. At the Last Supper He offered them His Body and Blood and told them, “Do this in memory of me.” When we gather at Mass and remember Jesus, we become participants in His story: Sitting in Mass is like sitting at the last supper; Kneeling is like kneeling on Calvary; Standing is like standing at the empty tomb. He comes to give us His own heart, and He only asks for one thing on return: Will you give God your heart? (3 Feb 2013)
