15 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
JESUS TRULY PRESENT IN THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
What a wonderful thing, to be able to be with God, in His Presence, while still here on earth...
This is the means He has given us to draw closer to Him. Just sitting in His Presence, absorbing His love for you and listening does wonders for your soul.
Spending time in His Eucharistic Presence will enable you to grow in holiness.
Many people also report being healed of emotional and physical ailments while spending time in His Presence.
Because Jesus' whole life is a mystery to us, we need Eucharistic Adoration to help us understand this mystery.
The Gospels were written by men who were among the first to have the faith and wanted to share it with others. They could see and make others see the traces of Christ's mystery in all His earthly life. Everything in Jesus' life was a sign of His mystery. His deeds, miracles, and words all revealed that in Him the fullness of divinity dwells bodily. His humanity appeared as a Sacrament that is, the sign and instrument of His divinity and of the salvation He brings. What was visible in His earthly life leads to the invisible mystery of his divine sonship and redemptive mission. Christ's whole life is a mystery of redemption. Redemption comes to us all through the blood of His cross. But this mystery is at work throughout Christ's entire life. All Christ's riches are for every individual, and, are everyone's property. Christ did not live His life for Himself but for us, for our salvation and for our justification.
Jesus brings into the presence of the Father on our behalf all that He lived and suffered for us. He is always our advocate before the Father.
Friday of the 5th week of Eastertide
or Saint Carthage, Bishop
He is also known as Mochuda. He was born in what is now County Kerry, in Ireland. After being a swineherd he joined a monastery and was ordained a priest. In 580 he determined to lead a hermit’s life, but after a few years his hermitage had become a place of pilgrimage and he was expelled from it by the local abbots or bishops. After some time spent travelling and founding churches, he settled at Rahan near Tullamore and in 590 set up a monastery, composing a rule for his monks to follow. In 635 Carthage and his monks were expelled from Rahan at the instigation of jealous neighbours. He founded a new monastery at Lismore, and was the first bishop of the town that grew up round it.
You are the Way the Truth and The Life.
Lead me through life
so that I with with trust in Your help
I will find my way
to the Father in heaven.
ST FAUSTINA'S Diary
“I will not allow myself to be so absorbed in the whirlwind of work as to forget about God. I will spend all my free moments at the feet of the Master hidden in the Blessed Sacrament.” (82, page 42)
THE WORD OF THE LORD
What I command you is to love one another
Jesus said to his disciples:
‘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.’
Christ our Lord was handed over for our transgressions
and was raised again for our justification, alleluia
Always Remember - JESUS LOVES YOU
