ST. JOHN PAUL II ON THE HOLY EUCHARIST
Dear brethren in Christ, as a preparation for the solemnity of Corpus Christi, here are some quotes of St. John Paul II for your personal meditation. God bless! Fr. Rolly Arjonillo.
“It is Jesus
that you seek
when you dream of happiness;
he is waiting for you
when nothing else you find satisfies you;
he is the beauty to which you are so attracted;
it is he who provokes you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is he who urges you to shed the masks of
a false life;…
who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives.”
– St. John Paul II, Homily, August 19, 2000-
“Only in Christ
do we find
fullness of life.
And so I invite you today to
look to Christ.
When you wonder about the
mystery of yourself,
look to Christ
who gives you the meaning of life.”
“Jesus is not an idea or a feeling or a memory.
Jesus is a living ‘person’ always present among us.
Love Jesus present in the Eucharist.”
– St. John Paul II, Address, October 3, 1979 & Nov. 8, 1978-
we are reunited in the Eucharist, we are strengthened in holiness
and renewed in happiness,
for happiness and holiness are the inevitable consequences of
being with God.
When we are nourished by the Living Bread …we become more like Our Resurrected Saviour, who is the fountain of our joy…
May happiness and holiness always abound in your life and flourish in your homes. And may the Eucharist…
be the center of our life,
the source of our happiness and holiness.”
– St. John Paul II, Homily, Feb. 2, 1981 –
