This morning I went to our daughters' Catholic high school for Mass. It's usually pretty brief, 20 - 30 minutes tops (except a few weeks ago we had a visiting Priest, who usually celebrates the Latin Mass, it went for the traditional 60 minutes with a LOVELY homily) Everyone, except for a few of us were upset and it did mess up the morning class schedule.
Anyway, I offered up my Mass this morning for the 3 women help captive in Ohio for 10 years with the six year old daughter from the house of horror. God bless them!!
Driving home to get ready to met a friend to go strawberry picking, I got aggrevated at a couple of drivers and the traffic was pretty unreal for a Friday. I realized something and it stopped me in my tracks, Christ is still physically in my body....my stomach!! Not only did I realize that, but I realized that I wasn't acting very grateful towards others in my head.
When I receive the Holy Eucharist, Jesus' body and blood, His saving self, eternal food, it is not JUST for me and my salvation, but for others too! Not only have I received the gift of His passion and resurrection in the Eucharist, I also received a mission: to go In PEACE!...to Love and Serve the Lord!!
