Thought for the Day – 18 June – The Solemnity of Corpus Christi

“A word that ought to cover many a Catholic with shame and confusion once came from the lips of a person raised in Protestant tenets and surroundings: “If I believed in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, I should spend all my life before a tabernacle and no power could tear me away from it.”

Does this not suffice to put to shame our little generosity in visiting Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament?

Let us pay Him a visit every day, even when only a short one is possible, particularly if it is our happiness to live with Him under the same roof. Let us not pass by a church where He is kept in the tabernacle, without entering at least for a moment, or without making at least a spiritual visit.

We can multiply spiritual visits at any time, amid our daily occupations and when we awake at night – a practice which growing love will more and more cogently urge upon us. Because after all, who can enchain love? Who can resist the heart? Who can separate what love has joined? Who can prevent, what obstacle can impede our hearts from living in perpetual adoration at the feet of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament?

“Where thy treasure is,” said Jesus, “there they heart also will be.” If the Holy Eucharist is our treasure, our heart will live in the tabernacle.”Fr Jose Guadalupe Trevino (The Holy Eucharist)

ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.  Never permit me to be separated from You.  
Amen.

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
