We Are Nourished and Strengthened
The Sacrament of the Eucharist is so important to our faith. On this weekend, we honor the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, praying that our appreciation of this Sacrament may grow and develop. We know that Jesus Christ is with us in the most powerful way when the simple bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus. We are nourished and strengthened to live lives of faith, hope and love. It is truly helpful for our spiritual lives to receive Holy Communion on a regular basis. This helps us to recommit ourselves to Christ and to be faithful disciples. This is a constant help that we all need to be effective in living our faith each day.
So, let us continue to always appreciate the Presence of our Lord in the Eucharist. May the Body and Blood of Jesus be a constant reminder to us of just how much we are loved by him.
And let us continue to pray for one another.
