Eucharistic Reflection - Union With God

“[Our] Eucharistic Encounter with Christ in Holy Communion is that apex moment of union with God within which Christ opens Himself fully to us and we respond, each in our own degree of readiness to receive Him. All other moments of our days find their full significance at the moment of Eucharistic Communion. It is at this moment that our quality of preparation for God’s coming stands revealed for what it is. Without a doubt, we come up wanting in this marvelous exchange with God. He receives our broken humanity and we receive His divinity. Through our Eucharistic union with the Blessed Trinity, our inner poverty is filled with the Eternal riches of our Triune God.”

(From Eucharistic Adoration – Mary, the Mother of the Holy Eucharist by Barbara Jensen)
