Eucharistic Reflection - Everything By and for Him


(Source: Wikimedia Commons)
“By Communion, Jesus comes to take possession of us and make us His. To enter into His plan, we must abandon to Him all rights over and all ownership in ourselves; we must leave to Him the direction and initiative of all our acts; we must do nothing by ourselves nor for ourselves, but everything by and for Him.”

(St. Peter Julian Eymard from How To Get More Out of Holy Communion)
