Let us pra y Prayer of Therese of Lisieux O my God! I offer Thee all my actions of this day for the intentions and for the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I desire to sanctify every beat of my heart, my every thought, my simplest works, by uniting them to Its infinite merits; and I wish to make reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of Its Merciful Love. O my God! I ask thee for myself and for those whom I hold dear, the grace to fulfill perfectly Thy Holy Will, to accept for love of Thee the joys and sorrows of this passing life, so that we may one
day be united together in Heaven for all Eternity. Amen. Prayer to Mary Not all Crucifixes tell the real story Just one-third of U.S. Catholics agree with their Church that the Eucharist is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ Pew Research, August 5, 2019
WOW !!!!!!!!!!! Note NOTE: The Eastern non-Catholic Churches, including the Eastern Orthodox, also share the Churchs faith in transubstantiation, though they do not call it that. Typically, Episcopalians do not believe in transubstantiation but in a concept of the Real Presence that would best be termed consubstantiation (though they dont use this term), since it holds that both Christ and bread and wine are present.
Please close your eyes And try to see The Last Supper You are at the table with Jesus Moderator speaking below On the day before he was to suffer he took bread in his holy and venerable hands, and with eyes raised to heaven to you, O God, his almighty Father, giving you thanks he said the blessing, broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying: The voice of Christ TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT: FOR THIS IS MY BODY WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR YOU. In a similar way, when supper was ended, he took this precious chalice in his holy and
venerable hands, and once more giving you thanks, he said the blessing and gave the chalice to his disciples, saying: The voice of Christ TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND DRINK FROM IT: FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD, THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL COVENANT, WHICH WILL BE POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME. Imagine this as a video is it fuzzy, grainy, black and white or technocolor. The Mystery of Faith Priest: The mystery of faith: People: A - We proclaim your Death, O Lord, and profess your Resurrection until you come again. or B - When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup, we proclaim your death, O Lord, until you come again. or C - Save us, Savior of the world, for by your Cross
and Resurrection you have set us free. All three are rooted in Scripture (1 Cor 11:26, Jn 4:42). Missing is Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again. This line, although powerful, is not found in Latin. In addition, it does not directly address Christ made present in the Blessed Sacrament, nor does it speak of our relationship with Him, as others do. Confessi on The Road to the Eucharist
There are two sacraments of healing: Reconciliation (Confession) and Anointing the sick and the dying Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven, and whose sins you retain are retained Sins committed after Baptism are forgiven in the Sacrament of Penance You must confess all mortal sins if you have doubt if a sin is mortal ask the priest Priests are not sent to be judge and jury, but to be Christ Himself, always ready to forgive Be honest and trust that the Blood of Jesus truly has washed away all your sins Dont forget to also forgive yourself
Why are we at Mass? Do we watch or participate (worship)? We are there to worship. We are there to pray with the priest. We do have scripture and a homily, but thats not what it is about. We are not there to be entertained or educated, we are there to worship. Religion until 500 years ago was about
worship. The heart of worship is sacrifice. Im worshiping God not the experience. All prayers are directed to God the Father its personal Abba, Dad, Father, Poppa. It should be personal, we are offering Jesus to His Father thru the power of the Holy Spirit. We are participants The Mass is not boring Who are we? We are the people of the Eucharist
Always remember who we are ! Seven Secrets of the Eucharist Jesus is alive! He never died! Christ is not alone. Its the Trinity. You cant separate the body, blood, soul and divinity. The Mass is the greatest prayer in the world. God forgive me for just going thru the motions. Its not just one miracle what a gift its all the miracles combined. What happens after I consume Jesus? This is personal. This bread becomes part of me, like wax into wax. I am transformed. Every reception of communion is different, because of my attitude. There is no limit to the number of times I can receive. Physical
communion once a day. Spiritual communion Adoration is unlimited If it were merely bread.. We would not genuflect to a piece of bread. We would not save bread in a gold box under lock and key. We would not keep a candle burning perpetually in the sanctuary. We would not kneel during Mass. We would not examine our consciences and confess our sins before receiving a simple piece of bread. We would not take a little wafer of bread to the sick and homebound.
We do all these things because we believe in the real presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. So, who was this Jesus Galilean Jew Carpenter Itinerant preacher Miracle worker Son of God King of Kings Christ Savior of the World
Chosen One Messiah Tell me who is Jesus to you. Who do you say that I am Jesus always acted like God Son your sins are forgiven the paralyzed man
You have greater than the Temple here to a first century Jew You heard it said (in the Torah) but I say The sermon on the mount, the Beatitudes Unless you love me more than your mother and father, you are not worthy of me
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my will never pass away Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you will not have life everlasting The Resurrection is the exclamation point
heresy words At the foot of the cross, one apostle is there What did the centurion say at the foot of the cross? Truly he was the Son of God! Jesus stakes His whole ministry on the Eucharist. I am the bread of life He says to chew (Greek trogo, gnaw) on His flesh. The day before they wanted to crown Him king.
The Passover Meal John 6 The Last Supper a Passover meal The meal is something new This is my Body. This is my Blood He institutes the Eucharist
He never mentions the Lamb (Now its His Body) He is the new Passover Lamb Do this in remembrance of Me The Mass
The Mass the divine rescue We meet God Adoration our weekly meeting with God Eucharist the plot of the Bible from page one And then they began to walk away.
Notre Dame fire went in to get the Eucharist Question How would Christ solve modern problems if He were on earth today? For those of the Catholic faith, there is only one answer. Christ is on earth today, alive on thousands of altars all over the world. So, what do we do? The answer is: Receiving the Eucharist, Adoration, Reconciliation and
Evangelization. St. Therese of Lisieux says The past is the past, I dont know I can join Jesus in the present. the future, Think about the Mass
A privileged encounter with Christ we talk and then we eat The supreme mystery the Eucharist The supreme play its good and beautiful wasting time with God
The supreme form of prayer, adoration and worship We adore God not material things Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth A great call and response between Jesus and the Mystical Body
The center of the Mass is the Eucharist Its not a memorial, its a real sacrifice Lamb of God Lamb of God is said 4 times in less than a minute at Communion time Mass takes me to heaven Right before I receive the
Eucharist maybe say the shortest prayer JESUS Thoughts.. Do I receive the Eucharist with awe and reverence Do I try to get closer to Jesus, contemplate the Face of Jesus with Mary says St. John Paul II The Paschal Mystery (Jesus Passion and Death, His Resurrection, His Ascension into Heaven) amazement and gratitude Is He the center of my life? Two times people fled from Jesus the Crucifixion and the Eucharist Bread of Life Do you also wish to leave me? Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. And we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God Eucharist = Grace = A super food for the soul It will help fight off vices
Remember St. Thomas Aquinas what happened could not finish Mass after he held up the host at the Consecration In the Eucharist we become one with God melted wax into melted wax Always remember who we are. Who are we? We are the people of the Eucharist. Adoration - Just one hour a weekWhat all can
you tell Jesus in one hour - better yet, what can He tell you Edith Stein martyred by the Nazis, It is most important the holy Eucharist becomes lifes focal point. Karol Wojtyla St. John Paul II The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic adoration. Dorothy Day Catholic Social Worker And if you and I love our faulty fellow human beings, how much more must God love us all? Cure de Ars, John Vianney I look at Him, He looks at me Fulton Sheen The China story the Communists throw 32 hosts on the ground, murdered on the 32nd day. How many priests, bishops and Eucharistic ministers have been killed just carrying the Body of Christ? Bread and wine
human tangible signs Bread symbol of life Table equals altar the greatest meal of love and grace The Eucharist is the sum and summary of the Catholic faith St John Paul II Warsaw, Poland June 2, 1979 Victory Square - 1,000,000 people - The chant lasted for 15 minutes
We want God ! We want God ! We want God ! Do we want him just as much we have no threats to receive Him at any time Do I get Mass in or do I get into the Mass? John 6 - These are all Your words, Jesus the eternal truth. And
because they are yours and true, I must accept them all with faith and gratitude. I have so often offended you, the holy and just fear you and you always say Come to Me, all of you Hes commanding us! Come to Me, all of you The Eucharist the plot of the Bible from page one
How much time do I spend preparing for the Eucharist? Why do I not prepare myself with greater care to receive? How far will I travel and plan for any other event football game, a wedding, retirement, dinner at home, etc. And yet you are here present before me on the altar, my God, Creator of me, Lord of all. Every time you attend Mass it should seem as great, as new, as sweet to you as if on that very day Christ became man in the womb of Mary, as his hanging on the cross or his resurrection for the salvation of man. Jesus says I will not send them away fasting. You have a birthmark that will never go away
If you were baptized Catholic you have a birthmark that will never leave you. Even if you are following your Catholic faith at a distance he is asking What do you seek? Come and see Is the Church just another voluntary organization doing goods works? I dont think so..Just another religion of 30,000 religions but we have smells and bells..I dont think so !!!!!!! The Catholic Church has all that God gives the Mass, the Sacraments, the Eucharist, Mary and the Saints. The Church is still our mother its where we find the fullness of life. The Church is like family, you knock on the door and they have to let you in. Life is full of choices But life is full of choices ie free will.
Sunday Mass and Confession maybe 1 hour and 15 minutes. Adoration is one hour a week. There are 168 hours in a week. God wants 2 hours and 15 minutes. 1.3% of His week or based on 14-hour day 2.2% 8736 hours per year. God wants 117 hours plus a little overtime. Again 1.3% of His year or based on 14-hour day 2.2% Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans. We should treasure most the new life we have been given in
Christ and seek what is above, the promised inheritance of heaven. We have to see all things in the light of eternity, mindful that He who gives us the breath of life could at any moment this night even demand it back from us. What will you say to Him? We will die. If you were to die tonight and stand before God,
and He asked you, why should I take you into heaven, what would you say? The candle is always burning The candle is always burning by the Tabernacle He is always here He never left. Christ is always here right now in this Church. He never left. He is always available to you everyday. Flannery OConnor If its just a symbol then hell with it All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful. Faith is what someone knows to be true, whether they believe
it or not. Can I really do 100% surrender to Him So when will I totally surrender to God and accept His grace? Confession, Mass, Eucharist, Adoration. What if your last day consisted of confession, Mass, Eucharist, Adoration. I asked myself What day and time will I die? What day and time will the world end? I have no answer to those two questions. So why do I act like I know the answer to those questions? St. Therese of Lisieux Her last words looking at the Crucifix Oh! I love Him! My God, I..Love..Thee!!
Adoration of the Eucharist - the one hour that can change your life First of all, don't worry about what you are to say, simply be in the presence of Jesus. That is pretty mind-blowing stuff in and of itself. Second, call to mind your sins or sufferings and ask Jesus to have mercy on you. Great healing is available to those who come to adoration. Third, are you thankful for anything? Think of each person or thing in your life you are thankful for and thank Jesus for each one. Fourth read a little of the Sacred Scriptures and pause quietly to think in your heart what it means. The holy rosary and our Blessed Mother can be very helpful when doing this. Listen to what Jesus is saying to you. After all, He is truly present in front of you.
Fifth, Ask the question that will change your life Lord what do you want me to do? Lastly, I remind you of the first advice, be in the presence of Jesus and look at Him. The catechism of the Catholic Church tells the beautiful short story of St. John Vianney who was amazed that one of his parishioners would spend such long hours in front of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. He said to him, What do you do in adoration? The man simply responded, I look at Him and He looks at me. How to receive the Eucharist at Mass Fast for at least one hour before Mass: It is customary to pray and fast before Mass in order to prepare ourselves for the Eucharist and to offer ourselves as a pure sacrifice to our Lord. (Water and medicine do not break a fast.) You must not be conscious of any grave sin: It is seriously wrong to receive our Lord while in a state of grave
(mortal) sin. If someone is conscious of grave sin, they are asked to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation before receiving the Eucharist. Before approaching the priest or Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, make a reverential bow in respect to our Eucharistic Lord. When they say either the body of Christ or the blood of Christ, your response should only be Amen. This word means So be it, It is so, or I believe. Please say it clearly and distinctly. You can receive the Eucharist either on the tongue or in the hands. If you choose to receive in the hands, place your right hand over your left (in the shape of a little throne to receive the King of kings). You must consume the host immediately. If you require more information on why it is essential to be in a state of grace in order to receive the Eucharist, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the clergy (priest or deacon). Please close your eyes
And see The Last Supper - You are at the table with Jesus Moderator speaking below On the day before he was to suffer he took bread in his holy and venerable hands, and with eyes raised to heaven to you, O God, his almighty Father, giving you thanks he said the blessing, broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying: The voice of Christ TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT: FOR THIS IS MY BODY WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR YOU.

DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME. Imagine this as a video is it fuzzy, grainy, black and white or technocolor. The teaching is hard Jesus doubles down The Holy Spirit will help you understand the Eucharist Before Mass Jesus open my eyes and heart

The Homily what touched you today The Offertory not just bread and wine, but all gifts everything is offered our fears, our hopes, our brokenness, our dreams The Eucharist prayer - Make holy, therefore, these gifts, we pray, by sending down your Spirit upon them like the dewfall, so that they may become for us the Body and Blood
of our Lord, Jesus Christ The Consecration - Send down the Spirit The priest breathes on the bread and wine The Dismissal sent forth by the Holy Spirit our mission works of mercy evangelization
