Humbly submit your will to God (thy Will be done) and consecrate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

A leper came to him and kneeling down begged him and said,
“If you wish, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
touched the leper, and said to him, 
“I do will it. Be made clean.”

The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean.
Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once.
Then he said to him, “See that you tell no one anything,
but go, show yourself to the priest
and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed;
that will be proof for them.”
The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter.
He spread the report abroad
so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly.
He remained outside in deserted places,
and people kept coming to him from everywhere. Mk 1:40-45

“It was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly.”  Sadly today, churches are empty.  Jesus Christ, the same Jesus that could not enter a town openly is lonely in our churches.  The Catechism of the Catholic Church says, “1374    The mode of Christ’s presence under the Eucharistic species is unique. It raises the Eucharist above all the sacraments as “the perfection of the spiritual life and the end to which all the sacraments tend.”201 In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist “the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained.”202 “This presence is called ‘real’—by which is not intended to exclude the other types of presence as if they could not be ‘real’ too, but because it is presence in the fullest sense: that is to say, it is a substantial presence by which Christ, God and man, makes himself wholly and entirely present.”203 (1211)
Jesus is “truly, really, and substantially contained” in the bread and wine in our churches and adoration chapels.  One saint said, “If people really understood the True Presence of Christ in our churches, we would need police to control the crowds”. I, myself, fail to remember this great miracle, mystery, and gift God has given to us.  May we educate and inspire all around us to understand the importance of the Eucharist and that Jesus Christ is really present among us.

Today’s challenge: We cannot worship something we do not know.  Read a book on the Eucharist.  Jesus is present in our church and Adoration chapel.  Go visit Him and be satisfied.  Bring a crowd with you!
