The Holy Eucharist to Be Taken Seriously

        As I had stated, the goal of this blog is to draw all to union with God through the Holy Eucharist.  After receiving Holy Communion this morning, I thought of the many Catholics who do not take the Holy Eucharist seriously enough.  It's like having the most precious pearl in the world in your home and you don't put it in a nice case nor pay much attention to it.  Worse yet, you don't even miss it if it got lost. 
        The Holy Eucharist, the giving of the Lord himself by himself, if received with the greatest possible reverence and gratitude, is exactly what we need for the complete transformation of us into saintly creatures.  Take it seriously and God will draw you deep into him, leading to union.
        (Way above all the honors and achievements of the world, union with God is the highest possible attainment of the human soul.)
