eucharist


Your love, Lord Jesus, is extravagant. As if your suffering and resurrection were somehow not proof enough, you have left yourself for us in the Holy Eucharist. 


How could it be true that the uncreated Creator of the universe - who cannot be contained, who is boundless, outside of space and time - allows himself to be contained in bread and wine? And all so that his creatures might consume him? 

All the while, Lord, as we consume you in the Eucharist, it is really you who consume us. It is less that we receive you, and more that you receive us - because you found us, before we found you. 

It is truly beyond human comprehension, but that makes it no less true. You chose to remain physically with us, veiled under the appearance of bread and wine. Such complete vulnerability - and total humility. 

You have given your very self for us, Lord. Grant us the grace to return your gift of self in thanksgiving - eucharistia - through the gift of our lives. 

I love you.






Joining the Blessed is She linkup on the Eucharist. Late again this week, no thanks to a sinus infection that doesn't want to go away. (Prayers are appreciated!)
