Eucharistic Reflection - He Draws Ever Closer To Us

“St. Teresa of Avila once marveled at the vulnerability of Our Lord in the Eucharist. One might be overcome by the chance to meet a king, said St. Teresa. However, it should never be forgotten that the King of the Universe has made Himself available to us at all times, in every Catholic church. In every chapter of the story of salvation, Our Lord seeks us out and draws ever closer to us, to be with us in the most radical way in the Eucharist.

Today (Solemnity of the Body of Christ) as we revel in the unabashed love that the Lord pours on us through His true presence in the Eucharist, let us pray about how we allow this Holy Communion to transform our interactions with each other.”

(From The Great Gift of the Eucharist by Rev. Mr. Omar Gutierrez)
