Holy Eucharist, the Most High

        Today's Communion verse is from Matthew 28.20: "I, the Lord, am with you always, until the end of the world."  To me, the Holy Eucharist Jesus instituted for us confirms this promise in a special way.  The Holy Eucharist is the bread of life, the Lord himself, the greatest gift he has left us, so special, so extraordinary, a treasure beyond measure...  When I receive the Holy Eucharist, not only Jesus touches me, we become one.  This gift is absolutely necessary to attain full union with the Lord.  I shall extol and exalt it as long as I am still breathing.
