Light and love


"Lord Jesus, you instituted the sacrament of
Holy Communion to give us the light we need to see
You in everyone whom you place into our lives.
 You gave us this sacrament to provide us with
the strength to do what is humanly impossible,
to love those who not only do not love us
but positively hate us, oppose us.

Lord Jesus, deepen our faith in Your Real Presence
so that receiving You here on earth we may love
as You want us to this side of heaven.  So that we
may join those who have learned the meaning of love
from You in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Amen.

Mary, mother of the Holy Eucharist, pray for us."

Fr. John Hardon, S.J.
