Advent Week 3 Jesus comes in the Eucharist
Day 2

Why does Jesus want to enter into our hearts and lives? Why does he want to share a meal with us?  He desires to remain in us and we in him, sharing his life. This meal is the Eucharist, the gift of his Body and Blood. Whoever eats* my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.” (John 6:54-56)

Jesus comes to us in the present moment in the mystery of the Eucharist. In faith, we prepare to receive him and in faith we share in his divine life in a new way each time we eat his Body and drink his Blood. How conscious do I prepare to receive him? How conscious am I of his mysterious presence within me after I consume the gift? How conscious am I of his sustaining presence long after I have left the Church?

Come, Lord Jesus, come!
