Thought for the Week
Today’s Feast is not only about the Eucharist –
it is also about the community
that assembles to celebrate the Eucharist.
Hospitality is at the heart of the gospel message.
If our hearts are not open & ready to reach out
& share with those in need, like Jesus did,
we cannot be united in our celebration.
It is the daily life that we live during the week
that gives us something to bring
to the community Mass on Sunday.
Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament
Outside this church the noisy traffic flows past.
People rush hither & thither.
But I have left that world behind & am here before You.
I do not exclude my brothers & sisters,
I bring them with me, for I know they are equally dear to You.
I have nothing, but feel I have everything since I have You.
I close my mind & open my heart, & so I am at peace.
Here I experience my true worth
which consists not in my possessions or achievements,
but in knowing that I am loved by You.
Here I encounter You, Lord.
Here I am nourished with that mysterious food
which alone can satisfy the hunger
the heavenly Father has put in my heart.
