For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. (John 6:55)In God’s perfect timing, Peter speaks these words to us again. Where else can we go? If we believe in the real presence in the Eucharist. We stay. What we do next, I’m not sure yet. But we start with the Eucharist. I went to the perpetual adoration chapel yesterday and fell to my knees. That’s never happened to me before. At 40 years old, it’s pretty much impossible for me to fall to my knees, but somehow I didn’t kneel. I fell. To my knees. In the presence of God. I cried and Jesus and I had a moment. I will not let this broken Church harden my heart to Jesus. I will not neglect that relationship with Him. I need it now more than ever. I implore you to spend some time with Jesus in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Find comfort in His presence. Seek direction from Him.
