" "The apostle is a chalice full to the brim with the life of Jesus, and his overflow pours itself out upon souls." _ Father Mateo Crawley-Boevey

Eucharistic Reflection - The Tabernacle



Next to the Tabernacle we will learn how to love. There we will draw the strength necessary to remain faithful. There we shall find consolation in times of sorrow. He waits for us always and He rejoices when we are next to Him, even if only for a short while.

Here Jesus waits for His people who suffer the contradictions of this life. He comforts them with the warmth of His understanding and His love.

It is in the Tabernacle that those words of our Lord come to life: Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. We will not fail to visit Him. He is waiting for us. How many are the gifts He has prepared for us!

(From In Conversation With God, Vol.4:43.3)
