O come let us adore him!

Thanks to Hollywood most people consider Beauty and the Beast, the frog and the princess, the film Titanic and Romeo and Juliet the biggest love stories of our time-wrong! The biggest love story in the history of humanity is contained in the little white host the priest blesses in every mass.

The Eucharist is undoubtedly the best part of being a catholic and Eucharistic adoration is God doing only what He can do-making the best much better and even more special There is nothing greater or fulfilling than the chance to be with Jesus one on one. The Eucharist is the answer to who we are why we are here and where we are going-Through Him with Him and Him- Cannon of the mass.

Walking into Eucharistic adoration is equal into walking into heaven only that there Jesus in the humble form of Bread and not the glory of his transfigured self. If he was in his transfigured form none of us would ever leave the church but he comes to us in humility that we may be attracted to him by love and respect instead of glamour and glory those and a lot more will come later- in Heaven. We have to share in the humility to share in the glory. How far is heaven?

It is out of incredible love for you and I that Jesus Son of God contains himself in that little white host considering the world itself cannot contain him. His presence in the Eucharist is an extension of his death on the cross with arms open welcoming all of us to come and spend time with him saying “Come unto me all who are weary and I will give you rest Mat 6:28”

Do not worry about what you will do or say before you enter being there is itself a great blessing “One day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere Psalms 84:1” Try and Realize who is present in the Eucharist. Present in all three meanings of the word. 1) Present as a gift, 2) Present – Now and 3) Present Physically.

Moreover do not judge yourself unworthy to be in His Presence because He came not for those who are righteous but for sinners. “Those who are well do not need a doctor”
Go in and tell Him with reference to yourself “Lord the one you love is sic Luke5: 30,31”

Pop in and say thank you after receiving Him in Holy Communion-we do well and always and everywhere to give you thanks-cannon of the mass. Hundreds walk in through the gate, many actually receive Communion but very few pop in to say thank you. Jesus waits in the Chapel asking painfully like he did when just one leper came to say thank you…Were not all ten made whole? Luke 17:17”
