What do aspirin and the Eucharist have in common?
Unfortunately, most of the time, not much.
You see, we take aspirin consciously thinking about the effect it will have on us. We have great confidence that it will change something within us. Ease pain. Reduce fever. Etc. Etc.
But how often do we think about the Eucharist with that same confidence and expectation?
How often do we truly think about how it will cleanse our soul, strengthen our spirit, and fill us with Christ?
God Bless you.
