Thought for the Week

"The Eucharist is alive.  If a stranger who knew nothing about the Eucharist were to watch the way we receive, would he
know this?  When you and I approach the Eucharist, does it look like we believe we are about to take into our bodies the
living person, Jesus Christ, true God and true man?  How many times, Lord, have I forgotten that the Eucharist is alive!  
As I wait in line to receive you each day, am I thinking about how much you want to unite yourself with me?  Am I
seeing your hands filled with the graces you want to give me?  Am I filled with awe and gratitude that you love me so
much as to actually want to come to me in this incredibly intimate way?  Or am I distracted, busy with other thoughts,
preoccupied with myself and my agendas for the day?  How many times, Jesus, have I made you sad, mindlessly receiving
you into my body, into my heart, with no love and no recognition of your love? How many times have I treated you as a
dead object?   The Host that we receive is not a thing!  It’s not a wafer! It’s not bread!  It’s a person – He’s alive!"
