A Eucharistic Glance

(Originally published December 23, 2012)

Some spiritual writers have described Mary as the first tabernacle since the Son of God resided in her womb. She took the newly and spiritually conceived Savior of the world to her aged cousin Elizabeth, who, after Mary and Joseph, is the first recorded Adorer of our Lord. Elizabeth was beside herself to be so blessed as to be in the presence of God.


How sad that so many of us today do not share that appreciation when we are in His Presence. Rather than leaping for joy as did John the Baptist in his mother’s womb, we walk by ignoring the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, acting as if He was not here among us. 

To have such a great gift, to have a God so easily accessible and not to appreciate that Gift, is one of mankind’s greatest tragedies.

  1. You make a good point, and a recent observation I have also had, when I pass by the Tabernacle, held within the military chapel we attend in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel - a room set off aside from the altar and Sanctuary. I am guilty of walking by and not even giving Him, waiting for ME, the time of day.

    I am thinking one of my Lenten practices this year will be to give more intentional thought to Him, and acknowledge Him, when my family passes by the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Thank you for this reminder of reverence and simply acknowledgement of Him!

  2. Thank you taking the time to comment. If we just challenge Catholics to be cognizant of Who is present in the tabernacles of our Church, lives and parishes will be transformed. May God bless your proposed Lenten practice.
