So in the midst of Mass today, I had a rather simple but quite epic epiphany. After receiving the Eucharist, I knelt in my pew and gazed out the window of the church. It suddenly dawned upon me that the God who created every beautiful mountain that I was gazing at was dwelling within me.
Growing up I often struggled with the reality of the true presence of Christ in the Eucharist. I was often confronted by friends, relatives, and anyone willing to talk about the Catholic faith about true presence of Christ in the Eucharist. After seeking answers to the many doubts, questions, and accusations about this reality I am able to proclaim with the Church that Jesus Christ is truly present in the Eucharist.
What a gift, that the very one who created the heavens and the earth became man and continues to give Himself freely and totally to us in the Eucharist. Jesus present in the Eucharist is the Source and Summit of our faith! Everything we do flows from Jesus in the Eucharist and every action we take points us back to Him.
Praise God that He helps each of us to remember, and to think I almost forgot!
