How many masses have you been to in your lifetime?
If you recently joined the Catholic Church that might be easier to answer, but for most of us, that question is near-impossible.
Because we’ve been to Mass many, many times, we sometimes forget what’s happening. We know what to do and what to say and when, but we forget the why. We know the form, but forget the power and meaning.
The gift of the Eucharist is truly a mystery for our human minds, but it still demands our response. Not indifference.
Christ continues to pour out his love and mercy to us. Despite our flaws and shortcomings, He is waiting.
Let us return to Him with renewed eagerness and reverence.
“How many of you say: I should like to see His face, His garments, His shoes. You do see Him, you touch Him, you eat Him. He gives Himself to you, not only that you may see Him, but also to be your food and nourishment.” – St. John Chrysostom
Be the Men.
