14 May 2020 : Jesus - Truly Present in the Blessed Sacrament

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen



To Look at the Blessed Sacrament is to look at the Face of God


I believe if we want to renew our faith, our Church, we must return to devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. This blog has commented in the past of what we believe is wrong with the Church. We can have all the great ideas but in essence we need to return ourselves and, please God through our witness, others, to Christ.

We therefore will feature for the foreseeable future devote space to the Blessed Sacrament. how we can return God to the centre point of our lives through a greater understanding of the Blessed Eucharist. Each message is simple and straightforward, but challenging and contains the power to change our lives.

When you want to get to know someone what is the first thing you do?

You spend more time with them, often conversing with them. You become closer to someone by sharing your feelings, thoughts, hopes and aspirations for the future and listening to them. When one person loves another, they want to be with this person whom they love. This is true for whatever type of relationship one may think of. A mother and her new born infant, a father and his child, two friends, sweethearts, husband and wife. Love seeks to be with the object of its love. This helps us understand the great mystery of our faith. If you want to develop a personal relationship with Jesus you have to make an effort just as you would in your interaction with others.


Continued tomorrow.



TODAY is the Feast of Saint Matthias, Apostle

He was not one of the Twelve; but after the treachery and death of Judas Iscariot, someone was needed to take his place. Two candidates were selected, and lots were drawn to see which of them should be made one of the Twelve: the choice fell on Matthias. Nothing is known for certain about his subsequent history.


  Drawing lots to select a candidate for an office sounds strange to us, but it was a recognised Jewish custom: for example, the priest who was to enter the Temple sanctuary and burn incense there was not chosen by some rota but by lot. Random events, independent of any obvious natural or human cause, were seen as a direct expression of God’s will. Drawing lots was not a substitute for human decision – human beings had chosen Matthias as a candidate, human beings decided which priests were eligible on which days – but a way of putting the final choice into the hands of God.


  When we attain some high or responsible position, we may be tempted to congratulate ourselves on being the best candidate for the job. We would do well to remember that we have got there because of the people we have met and the things we have found ourselves doing, and, more fundamentally, because of the gifts and talents that God has given us. These things are essentially random: like Matthias, we have been chosen by lot.



MORNING PRAYER

A man can have no greater love

than to lay down his life for his friends.

And You dear Lord did this to save a wretch like me.

Help me in thanksgiving

this day and always

to do Your Blessed Will.

Amen


ST FAUSTINA'S Diary

“O my God, how sweet it is to suffer for You,

suffer in the most secret recesses of the heart,

in the greatest hiddenness,

to burn like a sacrifice noticed by no one,

pure as crystal, with no consolation or compassion. 

My spirit burns in active love. 

I waste no time in dreaming. 

I take every moment singly as it comes, for this is within my power. 

The past does not belong to me;

the future is not mine;

with all my soul I try to make use of the present moment.  (351, page 157) 

WORD OF OUR LORD


You are my friends if you do what I command you

Jesus said to his disciples:

‘As the Father has loved me,

so I have loved you.

Remain in my love.

If you keep my commandments

you will remain in my love,

just as I have kept my Father’s commandments

and remain in his love.

I have told you this

so that my own joy may be in you

and your joy be complete.

This is my commandment:

love one another, as I have loved you.

A man can have no greater love

than to lay down his life for his friends.

You are my friends,

if you do what I command you.

I shall not call you servants any more,

because a servant does not know

his master’s business;

I call you friends,

because I have made known to you

everything I have learnt from my Father.

You did not choose me:

no, I chose you;

and I commissioned you

to go out and to bear fruit,

fruit that will last;

and then the Father will give you

anything you ask him in my name.

What I command you

is to love one another.’


John 15:9-17


cf.Jn15:16


I chose you from the world

to go out and bear fruit,

fruit that will last,

says the Lord.


Always Remember - JESUS LOVES YOU
