Jesus Is With Us In The Eucharist

by Adoration, Eucharist, Sacraments

“God was not content with giving us His only Son once for all, willing Him to take flesh in the womb of a Virgin – flesh like ours, so that He might suffer and die for us on the Cross – but He wished Him to remain with us forever, perpetuating His real presence and His sacrifice in the Eucharist. Aided by the Gospel narrative we can reconstruct and relive in our heart the sweet mysteries of the life of Jesus. Had we nothing but the Gospel, however, we would have only nostalgic memories; Jesus would no longer be with us, but only in heaven at the right hand of the Father, having definitively left the earth on the day of His Ascension. With what regret we would think of the thirty-three years of our Savior’s earthly life passed centuries ago! Oh, how different the reality! The Eucharist makes the presence of Jesus with us a permanent one.”

From Divine Intimacy by Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D.
