The closer you get to God, the more you become ALIVE.🔥
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭16:24-25‬

“Go to your confessor; open your heart to him; display to him all the recesses of your soul; take the advice that he will give you with the utmost humility and simplicity. For God, Who has an infinite love for obedience, frequently renders profitable the counsels we take from others, but especially from those who are the guides of our souls.” -St. Francis de Sales

Luke 22:19-20
“And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake [it], and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup [is] the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.”

Jesus said: “I am the living bread that …

Jesus said: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; … he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and … abides in me, and I in him” (Jn 6:51, 54, 56).
.
The Eucharist is the heart and the summit of the Church’s life, for in it Christ associates his Church and all her members with his sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving offered once for all on the cross to his Father; by this sacrifice he pours out the graces of salvation on his Body which is the Church.
.
The Eucharistic celebration always includes: the proclamation of the Word of God; thanksgiving to God the Father for all his benefits, above all the gift of his Son; the consecration of bread and wine; and participation in the liturgical banquet by receiving the Lord’s body and blood. These elements constitute one single act of worship.
.
The Eucharist is the memorial of Christ’s Passover, that is, of the work of salvation accomplished by the life, death, and resurrection of Christ, a work made present by the liturgical action.
.
It is Christ himself, the eternal high priest of the New Covenant who, acting through the ministry of the priests, offers the Eucharistic sacrifice. And it is the same Christ, really present under the species of bread and wine, who is the offering of the Eucharistic sacrifice.
.
Anyone who desires to receive Christ in Eucharistic communion must be in the state of grace. Anyone aware of having sinned mortally must not receive communion without having received absolution in the sacrament of penance.
.
Because Christ himself is present in the sacrament of the altar, he is to be honored with the worship of adoration. “To visit the Blessed Sacrament is … a proof of gratitude, an expression of love, and a duty of adoration toward Christ our Lord” (Paul VI, MF 66).

“Awake, mankind! For your sake God has become man. Awake, you who sleep, rise up from the dead, and Christ will enlighten you… You would never have returned to life, had he not shared your death.” St. Augustine

“What wonderful majesty! What stupendous condescension! O sublime humility! That the Lord of the whole universe, God and the Son of God, should humble Himself like this under the form of a little bread, for our salvation…In this world I cannot see the Most High Son of God with my own eyes, except for His Most Holy Body and Blood.”
—St. Francis of Assisi

What a precious gift we have been given! The Savior of the world, God in the flesh, Jesus, our Healer and our Lord is still present with us on Earth. And not only can we be intimately united with Him daily in the sacrament of Holy Communion❤, but we can also spend unlimited time in His presence in Adoration or in front of a tabernacle, where He is inside. Jesus loves us so much that even after His great victory over death and His glorious ascension into Heaven, He chose to “remain with us.” I encourage you to not only acknowledge Jesus, our Emmanuel, when you pass by Catholic churches, but to set aside time for Him and to be with Him daily in front of the Blessed Sacrament. I assure you that if you sincerely want to believe and love Him more deeply through making a regular Holy Hour, you will be overjoyed with the transformation that takes place in your soul. .
.
.
I’d love to hear how one-on-one time with Jesus has changed your life. Feel free to share. It could really encourage others 😊🙏 God bless you all and thanks for watching!
