We Are So Blessed

Yesterday I brought Communion to one of our homebound parishioners. I, an ordinary Catholic was privileged to carry Jesus, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Son of God, the King of Kings, Savior of the world to another Catholic to consume. I held God in my hand and gave Him to another. Can we be more privileged? Even Francis of Assisi never did that since he wasn’t a priest.
Do we realize how blessed we are? Hebrews 13:8 says that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Our faith teaches that Jesus is totally present in every Eucharist. The Jesus I carry in my pyx is the same Jesus that healed the leper, multiplied the loaves and fishes, raised Lazarus from the dead and rose from the grave on Easter Sunday. He is not a watered-down version but the Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor, Miracle Worker, Conqueror of Death, King of Kings, Lamb of God, God of Wonders, Light of the World, the Alpha and Omega, Bread of Life, Our Champion, Divine Physician, the Almighty One, the Beloved Son, Creator, Eternal One, Emmanuel, God With Us, Our Healer, the King of Glory, Lord of Lords, the Messiah, the Name Above All Names, Our Provider, Ruler of the Universe, the Rock of Ages, True God and True Man and so much more.
Think about it! How privileged we are to serve Him in such an intimate way! How blessed we are to be able to hold the God of the Universe in our hands and give Him to others. We must never forget how blessed we are or take this privilege and responsibility lightly. We should always do it with reverence and expectancy. After all, God is still in the miracle business.
