Jesus is available to us always – any moment we chose to be with Him. It is you and me that resists this opportunity. Whey do we do it? Why not turn to Him this moment? We can have so many reasons – some of them are even good reasons. However, during our days, we have ample time to spend with Jesus. Like any habit we have, we can nurture devoted time or moments to Jesus. Give yourself to Jesus. Find the moments to do so. Put time aside during your day. Find the times when it will work best for you. Pause during your day to just be with Him. Give your all to be with Jesus. It will change your live and its direction.

This is what the Church means when she speaks of the “Real Presence” of Christ in the Eucharist. This presence of Christ in the Eucharist is called “real” not to exclude other types of his presence as if they could not be understood as real (cf.
