Parents, Siblings, Cousins Or Friends Abandon
Our Eucharistic Lord For Greener Pastures!
My Dear People,
Why Our Lord would be so merciful and so generous as to leave us His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity for our ongoing sanctification is a complete mystery. When Jesus first taught His disciples, “Unless you eat my Body and drink my Blood, you will have NO life in you” many left Him. He turned to Peter and the Apostles and asked if they were leaving as well. Peter speaks up and says, “Lord to whom shall we go; You have the words of everlasting life.”
Our first Pope speaks for all of us in the declaration. What other denomination, what other faith can we go to, to find our Eucharistic Lord? And yet today, in all of our families we find parents, siblings, cousins and friends abandoning the Eucharist in search of something better. These apostates are no different than the first disciples who abandoned Our Eucharistic Lord in search for “greener” pastures.
Do not stop praying for the lost sheep. Jesus longs for their return. Pray for your conversion and theirs that we might always seek Him in the Holy Eucharist!
Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark Bozada
May we always be merciful and generous to His Body and Blood.
