Strengthening Our Knowledge–and Love–of the Eucharist

POSTED ON: June 18, 2010 by

Pope Benedict XVI recently spoke about the need for the Church to gain an even more profound knowledge of the magnificence of the Holy Eucharist.

“‘When we receive Christ,’ the Holy Father explained, ‘the love of God expands inside us, radically modifying our hearts and making us capable of gestures which, by the contagious power of goodness, can transform the lives of people around us.’” Read more of Our Holy Father’s comments here.

CCH Epic - MonstranceHow often are you receiving the Eucharist? How is the Eucharist changing your life? Are you making an effort to increase your love and adoration for Christ’s True Presence in the Holy Eucharist? Our Lord didn’t just give us His teachings but His very Self.

“The hidden treasure… is Jesus himself, the Kingdom in person.  In the Sacred Host, he is present, the true treasure, always waiting for us.  Only by adoring this presence do we learn how to receive him properly-we learn the reality of communion” (Pope Benedict XVI, from his homily in Altötting at the Basilica of St. Anne,  2006).
