The Eucharist is essentially about a deep and profound union with Jesus Christ. It is about allowing Him within our souls so that He can begin to transform us, and make us like Himself. As St. Pius X said, “Remember, this side of heaven, there is no way to be closer to Jesus than by worthily receiving him in Holy Communion.”
So the question then remains for us, do we really believe what the Church teaches about the Eucharist? That it is truly Jesus Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, present under the form of bread and wine? Do we believe that it is the greatest way to encounter Our Lord? Do we believe that through it He can transform our lives?
If not, then why not?
