And He Waits

We drive past Him to work.  

And He waits.

We drive past Him on the way home.

And He waits.

We jog past him during our morning runs.

And He waits.

We bring the kids to school, practice, camp, friend's houses.

And He waits.

We pass Him as we go to dinners, parties, functions and stores.

And He waits.

And here is the irony....

If someone told us Jesus was sitting in our Church waiting for us, we would no doubt drop what we were doing and drive like mad to get there to see Him.  

And yet, one of the unique things about our faith as Catholics is that we believe our Savior is present in the Eucharist.

Truly present.

Which means He sits in the tabernacle every single day except Good Friday.  

Waiting for us to visit Him as we go about our daily lives.

God Bless.

For some reason many Catholics (including myself) were poorly catechized and didn't know about or truly understand Eucharistic Adoration. I think I was an adult before I heard of it.

This is powerful, Michael. We humans have really thick heads, don't we?

Michael said...

Victor: Thank you!

Noreen: Me too. And I went through the whole program.

Mary: We certainly do - me most of all.

God Bless all of you.
