Isaiah 53:5: But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed.
The Greatest Gift
In our Church, we are so priviliged, we have a great reality, one we do take for granted and that is Jesus present in the Holy Eucharist. This is the greatest miracle of all. It is a reality that is beyond our comprehension. To spend time with Jesus in the Eucharist after Holy Mass is an absolute must and a time where we receive more than we can ever give. We tend to rush off after Mass forgetting that Our Lord, Our Redeemer, the holder of all time and all creation has just come to us. We need to spend time with Jesus who loves us so much and wants us to converse with Him in simple language about our ordinary day to day lives. He wants us to share with Him our thoughts, our feelings, our anxieties, our joys and sorrows. He in turn will help us during the day as He always does. But we need to spend time with Him. You will begin to see your life change, and miracles will take place in your life when you make time for Him.
Our Lord speaking to St. Faustina
(Diary of St. Faustina, 1385)
When I come to a human heart in Holy Communion, My hands are full of all kinds of graces which I want to give to the soul. But souls do not even pay attention to Me; they leave Me to Myself and busy themselves with other things. ... They treat Me as a dead object.
