I have a hard time getting excited about the Eucharist.
My problem is not that I just see it as a piece of bread either.
When I watch the Eucharist at Mass I do fully believe that is the body of Christ and a piece of Christ’s body is here in the church.
…but that the thing. It’s just a “piece of Christ’s body”.
Its only an inanimate piece of flesh from God. I can’t really get excited about a piece of skin.
If I never got to see a loved one but someone gave me a piece of their skin, I would say “whats the big deal in this?” So thats why I have trouble really being excited during the sacrament.
If it was the actual full bodied Jesus appearing that would be a different story but a piece of flesh? I’m sorry I just can’t really feel much for it.
Is there something I am missing about the Eucharist?
