My Jesus, what a lovable invention this Holy Sacrament is that You would hide under the appearance of bread to make Yourself loved and to be available for visits by anyone who desires You.

To some people this image may seem a little off. It’s a picture of two people getting married in the Catholic Church and the caption reads *gasp* “Pray for Vocations.” Usually we see nuns or priests on images like this, but marriage is a vocation too. It’s no holier than the religious life, and no “worse.” Let’s celebrate all the vocations and remember to pray for holy marriages too!

So if the Eucharist is the fulfillment of the old covenant and the institution of the Passover of the new covenant, then and only then can we grasp was Paul was saying in 1 Corinthians 5-7: ‘Christ, our Passover, has been sacrificed for us therefore let us eat the feast.’ I submit that the Eucharist He instituted as the Passover of the new covenant was the beginning of a sacrifice. That is the light that illuminates how Christ didn’t lose His life on Good Friday because He’d already freely given and laid it down on Holy Thursday. He wasn’t the victim of Roman injustice on Good Friday as much as He was the victim of Divine Love on Holy Thursday. The Eucharist as the Passover sacrifice of the new covenant is what transformed the bloody execution into the consummation of the sacrifice, the initiation of which He gave us in the Holy Eucharist.

don’t cross oceans for people who wouldn’t cross a puddle for you.

No, do it. Do cross oceans for people. Love people, all people. No conditions attached, no wondering wether or not they’re worthy. Cross oceans, climb mountains. Life and love isn’t about what you gain, it’s about what you give.
