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.
