What connects Mass and the Resurrection? The Body and Blood of Christ present at Mass. Don’t come to Mass for what you can get, but come to give. When you give your heart, Jesus gives you his. We believe the Eucharist is Jesus’ Body and Blood because Jesus said so, and sometimes there are miracles that help our faith. Jesus gives us the Eucharist so we can be in communion with him. Live your Communion every day.
Where would we expect to find the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords? Anywhere but the humble bread on the humble altar of a humble church. Christ becomes present in bread and wine not to “wow” us but to “woo” us. The King of all Hearts wants to be the King of your heart. Will you let Him in?
Our parents fed us, first milk, then solid food, now the best food of all: the Eucharist. The Eucharist is when Jesus, the good Shepherd, feeds us, his sheep. This Shepherd became a sheep, the Lamb of God, and then died for His sheep. When we were baptized we were clothed in white and became God’s sheep. Now the sheep come forward to eat from their Shepherd’s hand.
Communion means Jesus is always with us; we are never alone. Mass has taught us so many wonderful things that we must go tell the whole world the Good News of God’s love! That’s a big job but we can do it because we have union with Jesus. When people see us, they should see Jesus in us. Go live the Gospel of the Lord! (3 Mar 2013)
Jesus wanted to give his friends the very best, so He gave them himself. The Mass is the Last Supper and Calvary and the Empty tomb. He comes to give us His own heart, and He only asks for one thing in return: Will you give God your heart? (3 Feb 2013)
Divine Mercy – God wants his children to be fully alive so he feeds us Jesus. Jesus will be entering your body today, but he doesn’t just want to enter your body. He wants to enter your heart. Pray every day and open your heart to God’s love.
Holy Thursday – We judge the value of an item by the price that was paid for it. You were bought at the price of a man’s blood — and not just any man, but God’s own Son. How can you repay this debt? By loving as you are loved.
