SEEK THE LORD IN THE HOLY EUCHARIST


SEEK THE LORD IN THE HOLY EUCHARIST

“As a deer longs for flowing streams, so longs my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God? (Psalm 42)”

The liturgy applies these words to our eagerness to be united with Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. The Holy Eucharist is the greatest divine gift, the height of Trinitarian love and self-giving to his creatures, and an inexhaustible source of interior life.

“Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst; the water that I shall give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. (Jn 4:14)”

“We need to seek out our Lord eagerly in the Eucharist, not only when he is on the altar or in the priest’s hands during the Sacrifice of the Mass, but also when he remains reserved in the tabernacle. Jesus Christ is really present there, with his Body, with his Blood, with his Soul and with his Divinity … I like to repeat this truth time and time again, making acts of faith.

My daughters and sons, treat him well for me! Don’t leave him alone in the tabernacle. Keep him all the company physically possible; and then with your heart, when you’re working, go to the tabernacle and say loving things to him. May he see that you are dedicated, faithful, loving, with a sincere desire to be filled with God. St. Josemaria.”
