Eucharistic Reflection - Come To Me

“The same Jesus of Nazareth Who says, ‘I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly,’ Who heals the broken-hearted, Who gathers the little ones to Himself, is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament.

The Blessed Sacrament is the Sacred Heart of Jesus living in our midst…

The Blessed Sacrament is Jesus, gentle and humble of Heart, calling you, ‘COME TO ME,’ telling you, ‘DO NOT BE AFRAID,’ promising you, ‘I WILL REFRESH YOU.’

The Samaritan woman encountered Jesus at the well. In the Blessed Sacrament, we meet Him at the well of fresh graces, the font of unfathomable riches, the springs of salvation, where our Savior has drawn you, like the beloved apostle John, to His adorable Heart that you may drink, from the rivers of living water, the endless graces flowing with divine love and infinite compassion…

He thanks you for the comfort your adoration has brought Him. He thirsts for our faith, longs for our trust, and yearns for our grateful love. Faith, trust, and grateful love are the spiritual gold, frankincense, and myrrh that we bring to our Eucharistic king.”

 (Father Vincent Martin Lucia from Come To Me In The Blessed Sacrament)
