May God’s peace, love and mercy be with you all!
Jesus, God’s Word made flesh, is what matters the most.
These questions sort of remind me of a song entitled “I Could Only Imagine” wherein the person wonders what it would be like to walk by Jesus’ side, whether to stand or fall on his knees in the presence of Jesus, when all he will do is forever worship Him.
Well, now people can stop dreaming or trying to imagine what it would be like to be in the presence of Jesus, Our Good God. All they have to do is to go to the Catholic Church (the only Church founded by Our Good Lord 2,000 years ago) where not only is He present when Scriptures are being proclaimed as the people are gathered together in prayer but also truly and specially present Body, Blood Soul and Divinity in the most Holy Eucharist during Holy Mass. Ahhhh…we don’t have to wait to get to heaven to start adoring/worshiping Him, we can do it now! That’s why we Catholics sometimes stand and kneel during the liturgy because the very God Who has created us, Who has died for us 2,000 years ago is present. Now the awesome part is as a Catholic, you get to eat His very flesh, and drink His very Blood as what He has repeatedly promised in Scriptures (John 6).
People can read tons of books about Jesus and read the Scriptures repeatedly a million times or listen to hours and hours of talk about Him but nothing compares to the intimacy that you get when you actually receive the very own Body and Blood of Jesus, the very God we have dreamed about, desired to know, and love so much.
2,000 years ago when Jesus talked to His disciples about eating His flesh and drinking His blood, some disciples of Jesus couldn’t accept His teaching, they just couldn’t handle it, so they walked away. (John 6:66)
So, now the question is could you handle it? Will you walk away like the other disciples did knowing what you know now? Will you follow the very teaching of Truth Himself?
