REFLECTION…

.

We are perhaps in danger of not realising fully how close Our Lord is in our lives

because God presents Himself to us under the insignificant appearance of a piece of bread,

because He does not reveal Himself in His glory,

because He does not impose Himself irresistibly,

because He slips into our life like a shadow,

instead of making His power resound at the summit of all things…

How many souls are troubled by doubt because God does not show Himself in the way they expected! (J. Leclerq)

.

We need to be attentive,

because Our Lord shows Himself in the normal events of every day.

May we be full of faith in Him and trust in His promises.

May we know how to recover this interior light of hope and joy,

that breaks through the monotony of days which can all be the same,

that helps us find Jesus in our ordinary life!

.

We also need to examine our attitude

to see how we adore Jesus when He is exposed in the monstrance or hidden in the tabernacle.

With what devotion and reverence do we kneel in the moments indicated in the Holy Mass,

or each time we pass by those places where the Blessed Sacrament is revered?

QUOTE…

.

“The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship.

Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love.

Let us not refuse the time to go to meet Him in adoration,

in contemplation full of faith,

and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world.

Let our adoration never cease.”

.

– St. Pope John Paul II

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Most Divine Lord, I adore You.

Thank You for Your Holy Body and Blood,
which fill me with every heavenly blessing and grace!
