Hi Gus, I get a very brief snippet of your show every day on my way to work and then to and from noon mass. Daily Mass has always been a part of the best years of my life. I have not always had the opportunity, but it seems that whenever I make a bargain with the Lord to move an obstacle out of the way so I can get to daily Mass, He does…and always leaves the door open. When I am going to receive Communion, I am always floored by the fact that there is enough Grace in receiving the Body and Blood of Christ to make a Saint. I am also floored that Jesus sacrifice on the Cross and the love that he extended to His church through the Paschal banquet, both in washing their feet and feeding them, continues until the end of time, even for sins yet to be committed and for people yet to be born. Then I reflect on very business concepts like “Return on Investment”…as in what am I going to do with all of this Grace. Lord, make me prepared to receive, and where I am not prepared through my ignorance, bring me healing, even for the next time…and when I go forth, may I go forth one with the Church, and with your mother Mary who was your first tabernacle…and Lord nourish my body and soul as I go back to my duties as an employee, a father, a husband, a friend, and any other way that You would use me today…Amen.
Thank you for today’s segment. It really opened my eyes and I will change my focus as I walk up to receive. While I’ve always been filled with joy and reverence to receive, I have not spent the time of that short walk in a way that I feel good about now that you have brought it to light. Why did I never think about this before? I would guess that the nuns made it a part of my sacramental preparation 56 years ago and I have just have been careless.
