Friends, last night I offered Mass for Holy Thursday, which commemorates Christ’s gift of his Divine life and presence in the Holy Eucharist. It is through the Holy Eucharist that we participate in the Lord Jesus’ offering of himself for our sake through his suffering and death. It is through this participation that we can become ever more like the Lord Jesus, whose Divine Life and presence we receive in the Blessed Sacrament. Let us pray that our reverence for the Holy Eucharist will increase and that our reception of this most sacred mystery of our faith will enliven our hearts to be moved with compassion for the Suffering Christ who continues to make himself present to us in the afflicted bodies of his beloved poor.
