Take Jesus Christ within yourself when you receive Holy Communion. And in doing so, let good works flow from you which is the proper fruit of our union with Him. Receive Jesus when you take the Eucharist as Zacchaeus did in the Gospel. Give of yourself in meaningful ways as he did upon receiving Jesus into your home and heart.
Do we take part in the Eucharist weekly? Is there an opportunity to receive more frequently? Such blessings come to those who receive Holy Communion! His Body and Blood are true gifts that allow God to be received into us and to stay with us in Grace. Let us not fall away from the Mass and the Eucharist! This Blessing is for us – and we should hurry to receive it frequently!
Taking time to thank Jesus for His gifts of Presence, especially in the Eucharist, is essential. We are thankful for great gifts we get. Jesus is the most precious gift we can receive!

What gifts have you received from Holy Communion? We receive the sweet Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. It cleans our souls. It empowers our lives.

Holy Communion is Jesus Christ’s Way of uniting with us. He gives us His Flesh so we may become one with Him! Let us become both worthy and hungry for this kind of union with the Divine!

Is it yours as well?
Holy Communion is a visit from Jesus Christ into our one home – our bodies and souls. We should be prepared like we would be for a visit of important dignitary. There is no being more loving and giving. Jesus Christ is our Savior and King! Let us prepare for Him before we receive the Eucharist cleaning our souls through a review of our lives and repentance for our sins. Let us receive Him with great joy!
The Blessed Sacrament is such a Gift! However, we need to examine our conscience before going to Communion. We need to seek God’s forgiveness. In doing so, we may not be fully aware of all of our sins. But, if we seek to repent with a humble heart, God will remove all of our sins. They will be washed clean through the great love of God! The Sacrament of Reconciliation is another great gift we should take full advantage of. Receiving the Eucharist is a gift Jesus wants us to have. Let’s us partake in it frequently!
When we receive Communion with Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, we are receiving God Himself! Let’s be worthy of this awesome gift!! We need to avoid sin and seek repentance when we do. Let us put on holiness to receive the Holy of Holies! Although we are never completely deserving, Jesus calls us forward to receive His Body and Blood. With humility in our hearts, let’s receive Him joyously!!
God has humbly clothed Himself in simple bread and wine as our Eucharist! Can we too be humble? Do we reflect this humility and love of God in our lives? The simple bread and wine become Presence, and yet, remain available for us. Let our lives reflect this amazing and wonderful Grace of Jesus Christ!!
Christ’s Blood outpoured for us is our gift at the Eucharist. His very Presence is within the Chalice. Do we appreciate its true worth, power, and beauty? Can we let it encompass our souls with His Grace? Let us approach Him in the Blessed Eucharistic Feast with humility and awe!
