Colossians 2:6-7 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
“Beloved, you have taken me into your body having received me in the Eucharist. Can you see the power of what has transpired in you? I tell you, you cannot! All of heaven is contained in the disguise of bread. Do you believe this?”
Lord I believe!
“Then let this truth transform you. Let love conquer you. Let peace rule over you. Let wisdom guide you. All these things are available to you when I come to you in the disguise of bread. Then act with love, live in peace, immerse yourself in holy wisdom. You who are gifted with the divine treasury bear the greater responsibility. You are my instruments in the world. In you, my love, peace, and wisdom are meant to reign so that they may act in you wherever you go. You are Eucharistic agents. Do not take this lightly, or you will be called to account for squandering so infinitely great a treasure. You have been given this treasure for a purpose. Be mindful of this always. I am with you. I am in you. We are one.”
O my Jesus, forgive me for the times I have taken for granted this unimaginable gift! Help me to be your Eucharistic agent in the world, acting with love, living in peace, immersing myself in holy wisdom for the good of all those you send me. Jesus I praise you for giving yourself to me in the Eucharist—your Body in my body, your Blood in my veins, your Love in my heart. I am yours, you are mine, we are one! Save souls! Amen.
