I attended morning Mass at a different church today and it turned out that the priest had such a heavy foreign accent that I did not understand much of what he said. No problem ~ I was drawn even more to focus on the Holy Eucharist, the center of worship. Being the true body and blood of the Lord, the Holy Eucharist is being viciously attacked by Satan more than ever nowadays. Atheists and others ridicule us, mock us, laugh at us, or accuse us of being idolatrous. They can do all they want and the truth remains the same. I really feel sorry for them for not knowing what they're doing. May God forgive them.
The Holy Eucharist is the bread of heaven, our spiritual food. It is out of God's mercy that the bread and wine do not look like real flesh and blood. Nevertheless, the effect is the same. We must believe in the word of the Lord and not go by what we see or feel. The Holy Eucharist sustains our very existence in God. I now treasure it more than ever.
