(Photo©Father Lawrence Lew, O.P. - Used With Permission) "Loving souls can find no greater delight than to be in the company of those whom they love. If we, then, love Jesus Christ much, behold we are now in His presence.  Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament sees us and hears us; shall we, then, say nothing to Him? Let us console ourselves in His company; let us rejoice in His glory, and in the love which so many enamored souls bear Him in the Most Holy Sacrament. Let us desire that all should love Jesus in the Holy Sacrament, and consecrate their hearts to Him; at least let us consecrate ou ..read more

"What does Jesus Christ do in the Eucharist? It is God who, as our Savior, offers Himself each day for us to His Father's justice. If you are in difficulties and sorrows, He will comfort and relieve you. If you are sick, He will either cure you or give you strength to suffer so as to merit Heaven. If the devil, the world, and the flesh are making war upon you, He will give you the weapons with which to fight, to resist, and to win victory. If you are poor, He will enrich you with all sorts of riches for time and eternity. Let us open the door of His Sacred and adorable Heart, and be wrapped a ..read more

Pondering Tidbits of Truth - May 9, 2024

Pondering Tidbits of Truth is my simple and inadequate way of providing nuggets of spiritual wisdom for you to chew on from time to time. Archbishop Luis M. Martinez, Servant of God "As an audience maintains silence to hear better the voice of an orator, as music lovers keep silence during a symphony to admire its artistic beauty, so the silence of contemplation is nothing other than the indispensable condition for hearing the voice of God and addressing to Him our heartfelt words." (From When God is Silent: Finding Spiritual Peace Amidst The Storms of Life)   Father Donald Haggerty ..read more

Eucharistic Reflection - Of Course, You Are Unworthy!

"Do you feel unworthy to Receive Holy Communion? You should. You are unworthy. We are all unworthy. Knowing your unworthiness is a sign that you have a healthy spiritual life and proper disposition for receiving Holy Communion... Though we are all unworthy of such a great gift, our Retreat Master [St. Peter Julian Eymard] is very clear that the only thing that should keep us from Holy Communion is mortal sin." (Excerpt from 30 Day Eucharistic Revival - A Retreat with St. Peter Julian Eymard by Father Donald H. Calloway, MIC ..read more

Eucharistic Reflection - God Is Not Loved!
Harvesting The Fruits of Contemplation

(Image Source: Wikimedia Commons) “Think about it: If a person treated his friends the way so many Catholics treat the Holy Eucharist, they would soon find themselves having no friends. Yet how many Catholics receive Holy Communion in the haphazard way? How many commit a sacrilege by receiving Holy Communion in mortal sin? How many priests and bishops allow liturgical abuses, idols and false gods to be set up in sanctuaries, immodest attire in church and tabernacles to be placed in closets or locations where nobody can find Him? Has Jesus done something wrong that His Real Presence in ..read more

Monday Musings - Jesus Speaks to St. Catherine of Siena
Harvesting The Fruits of Contemplation

Today we Dominicans joyfully remember our beloved sister, St. Catherine of Siena.    [I am re-publishing this post since the words of this fearless servant of God are as relevant today as they were when she wrote them more than 800 years ago.] (Image source: Wikimedia Commons) What a treasure St. Catherine of Siena is! One does not become a Doctor of the Church by being fearful to express, teach and live God's Truth in its entirety.  How ill-advised we are to discount, ignore or try to nuance the wisdom God has shared over the centuries through such faithful servan ..read more

What follows is just one of 175 Eucharistic Reflections intended to draw you closer to our Eucharistic Lord.  Have you gotten your copy yet? Here You are, quietly waiting…waiting for me to come and spend some time with You. I could have chosen not to come…You give me the freedom to say no. A thousand and one excuses could have kept me away. Even so, You would have waited patiently for me. Why do You wait? You wait only for me to give back to You a few minutes of the precious time that You have given me as a gift…time I often fill with mindless activity or useless worry. Of what ..read more
