Prayer: Pope Francis

We need to let ourselves be imbued with the light of the Holy Spirit, to introduce us into the Truth of God…. Let us ask ourselves what steps we are taking so that our faith directs our whole existence. Do not be a “part-time” Christian, at certain moments, in certain circumstances, in certain choices. Be Christian at all times! The truth of Christ, that the Holy Spirit teaches us and gives us, always and forever involves our daily lives. Let us invoke the Spirit more often, to guide us on the path of Christ’s disciples.

Prayer: John Paul II

The encounter with Christ, constantly intensified and deepened in the Eucharist, issues in the Church and in every Christian an urgent summons to testimony and evangelization. Entering into communion with Christ is the memorial of his pasch also means sensing the duty to be a missionary of the event made present in that rite. The dismissal at the end of each mass is a charge given to Christians, inviting them to work for the spread of the gospel and the imbuing of society with Christian values.

Prayer: Andre Bessette

Communion is the life of your soul. If you were to eat only one meal each week, would you survive? It is the same thing with your soul: you must nourish your soul with the Eucharist. There is a beautiful table set up in front of us with great food on it, but sometime we do not ever bother to take it.

The Body and Blood

Catholics hold through faith that the Bread and Wine we offer to God becomes the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ during the Eucharist.

The Eucharist is an action of the community with God.

What are your stories of transformation over time as you consume the real flesh and blood of Christ?

Prayer: Teresa of Calcutta

Charity begins today. Today somebody is in the street, today somebody is hungry. Our work is for today: yesterday has gone, tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today to make Jesus known, loved, served, fed, clothed, sheltered. Do no wait for tomorrow.

Prayer: Charles Lewis Slattery

Almighty God, thank you for the job of this day. May we find gladness in all its toil and difficulty, its pleasure and success, and even in its failure and sorrow. May we look always away from ourselves and behold the glory and the need of the world, that we may have the will and the strength to bring the gift of gladness to others; that with them we stand to bear the burden and heat of the day and offer you the praise of work well done.
