-Johnnette Benkovic Williams

To what extent are you willing to sacrifice so that you may receive Jesus in the Eucharist more frequently?
“After I enter the chapel I place myself in the presence of God and I say to him, ‘Lord, here I am; give me whatever you wish.'”
-St. Catherine Laboure
Are you content to receive whatever the Lord desires to give you vs. what you want?
“…the Eucharist is a mode of being, which passes from Jesus into each Christian, through whose testimony it is meant to spread throughout society and culture. For this to happen, each member of the faithful must assimilate, through personal and communal meditation, the values which the Eucharist expresses, the attitudes it inspires, the resolutions to which it gives rise.”
-St. John Paul II
What does the Eucharist being a “mode of being” mean to you?
“From the depths of my heart I thank You, dear Lord,
for Your infinite kindness in coming to me.
I thank You for nourishing my soul
with Your Sacred Body and Precious Blood.
Grant that I may spend the hours of the day gladly
working with You according to Your will.”
-Act of Thanksgiving
