Eucharistic Reflection - Make A Deliberate Choice


"When someone spends time with Our Lord in the Eucharist, he or she makes a conscious and deliberate choice to belong to Christ entirely for that period, since the believer cannot be present to Christ through the mind alone or through the senses alone.

Since the believer has put aside every other activity, sacrificed every lesser good which might have been accomplished in that hour for the greater good of lingering a time with Jesus, that person has made a very clear accounting of what in his or her life belongs by right to Christ. It is everything."

Bishop Edward J. Slattery
