Reflection 84: The Blessed Host


It is impossible for us to love and adore Christ deeply enough as He is present in the Most Holy Eucharist.  When we are before Him, present in the Most Holy Eucharist, we should see the Almighty God present in veiled form.  He is: Mercy, Eternal Life, The Eternal God, The Savior of Sinners, The Living Water, The Fire of Pure Love, The Medicine for All Our Ills, All Sentiments of Love, The Hope of All, The Lifter of Burdens…and He is worthy of all our trust (See Diary #356).

What do you see when you gaze upon the Sacred Host?  With your eyes you see bread, but with your soul you should see God.  You should see God in all His glory and power and you should adore Him with all your might.  Think about how you relate to our Lord as He is present in the Holy Eucharist.  Pray that God will flood your mind with a true knowledge of Him and inspire your heart with a burning love.

Lord, help me to know and love You as You are present in the Most Holy Eucharist.  Help me to understand the gift of Your Mercy made present through this Holy Gift.  May I learn to adore You every time I am  before Your presence in this Sacred Host.  Jesus, I trust in You.
