Eucharist: God gives all

Presence, power and place.

In the Eucharist Christ fulfills His promise of presence: " I will be with you always, to the end of the world."

In the gift of His Body and Blood He gives power: "Without me you can do nothing. With God all things are possible."

In His Sacrament of the Altar He grants a heavenly place for us: "He who eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood has life eternal and I will raise him up on the last day. I go to prepare a place for you."

When God gives, He gives all. "This is My Body, This is My Blood" could not therefore mean "only my Body" or "only a sign of My Body" but must mean rather that God does in the Eucharist what He does also on the Cross and in the Resurrection, in all his words and actions: He gives all of His Body, all of His Blood, all of His Soul and all of His Divinity. The Eucharist is God who gives all that He has to give: He gives Himself! This is love. Christ the Bread of Life gives Himself entirely: His presence abiding, His Divine power saving and a place for us in His life never ending.

The Eucharist is God and Man, Christ Jesus, and in this Gift we have all we need: "He who sees Me sees the Father"

O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine."
