Grace upon grace...

 "My Jesus, let my heart sing out for joy, 
for You dwell in it.
Let my mind be filled with heavenly thoughts
for Your Father desires to reign there.
Let my soul be guided by Your Spirit 
for He wishes to sanctify it. ...

I am a child of God through Baptism 
and my resemblance to Him
has grown stronger through Holy Communion.
May I never forget my last Communion 
and may my heart yearn for the next one.

Somewhere, someplace there is a Mass being said 
-- a Calvary to be present at -- 
a Communion to receive, 
either sacramentally or spiritually --

an opportunity to be more like Jesus,
 the privilege of helping my neighbor, 
a time to say "I thank You, God", a situation to
choose Jesus over myself or a chance to make a sacrifice."
