"Getting Close to Jesus"

Standard

Even if we would hear the voice of Jesus, or see Him in a vision; it is not possible to be more intimate with Jesus than when we receive Him in the Eucharist.

This month’s Day of Prayer and Healing at the Pilgrim Center of Hope was about encountering the Risen Lord and Adoring Him in the Eucharist. The above quote is from Tom; he spoke about the gift of the Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion) which is the body, blood, soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Eucharist summarizes the salvation plan of God, His mercy and immense love. Jesus said: “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger…” (John 6:32)

Go to Jesus in the Eucharist! Attend Mass during the week when possible, spend time in the presence of the Eucharist. Spend that time in silent prayer – “looking at Him and opening yourself to Him.” For us, spending time with Jesus in the Eucharist has made an incredible difference in our lives! We have encountered a deep peace, a joy and healing that we believe is of our Lord Jesus.

We live at the Pilgrim Center of Hope. The building itself used to be a convent and there is a chapel where the Eucharist is kept in the Tabernacle. We are able to spend time with Jesus in an extraordinary way. You are welcome to visit the Chapel, or visit your local Catholic Church.

If you are not Catholic and would like to learn more about Jesus in the Eucharist; contact us! We would be happy to answer any questions (or direct you to the proper resource for the answers!).
