Thoughts on Grace: Sabbath Moments Meme
I am joining Colleen once again for her Sabbath Moments Meme. This meme is a reminder for me to focus on God and to live in the present. Or as Colleen puts it: to be still and rest in God. I have had many Sabbath Moments this week. The other day, after Mass, I was driving in my car and passed a restaurant. On a billboard in front of it was posted, " YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!" I could barely drive home as this thought resonated throughout my being. You are what you eat. No wonder Holy Communion is the greatest treasure of the Church. We receive the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ! Jesus comes into our hearts and transforms us .....we become like Him. We consume Him and He utterly consumes us in the fire of His Love.
"If you have received worthily, you are what you have received." St. Augustine
Our Lord does not come down from heaven every day to lie in a golden ciborium. He comes to find another heaven which is infinitely dearer to Him - the heaven of our souls, created in his image, the living temples of the adorable Trinity." St. Therese
Yesterday, I posted about New Age spirituality. I decided to post about the Eucharist today because it points to a Christ- centered spirituality versus an I- centered spirituality. The difference between the two is infinite.
