When we think about meeting Jesus or receiving Holy Communion in a Catholic Church, we can mistakenly think that we are supposed to feel extremely spiritual/ overly excited.
No. Most of the time, when I go to Mass, it is very calm, very casual, and nothing too dramatic. It is not overwhelmingly emotional.
However, imagine that you were living 2,000 years ago in Palestine, and you saw Jesus Christ walking through the streets or doing everyday work as a carpenter. Would you be overwhelmed with incredible emotion? No. Jesus looked like any other guy when he was walking around town. This is why so many people could not believe Jesus when he said he was God - “isn’t this the son of Mary?”
This is how we can look at Holy Communion. Yes, the Eucharist is Jesus Christ, and the Mass is God’s greatest gift to the world. and Yes, during Mass, Heaven is kissing the face of the Earth. and Yes, the Mass is Heaven on Earth. However, it is OKAY if we don’t have dramatic feelings or feel overwhelming emotional during mass or during Holy Communion.
Love is NOT a feeling. Love is a decision to sacrifice.
When you go to Mass, most likely, you will not have any special emotions or feel overwhelmed. That is okay.
Remember that God speaks through a still small whisper.
