AdoremusmultionwhiteEucharist is… Food for the Journey

Eucharist is… Food for the Journey. We might do well to take a moment to thank God for all that we have received, materially and in prayer. All that we have faced in our lives we did not face alone. Always God’s strength and God’s love were at work in our hearts even when, and perhaps especially when, we did not know it at all. We can pray for those for whom the journey is hard. But we can pray too that God’s strength and love will be at work in our hearts to make us bread broken for others, bringing the nourishment of God’s love to the weary and downcast.

EUCHARIST AND SAINT ALPHONSUS 

AdoremusmultionwhiteIn the run-up to Adoremus 2018, the Maryton Carmelite convent is running a series of talks. on the 27th May Fr Tim was honoured to speak on the Eucharist and St Alphonsus. If you did not manage to attend the majority of his talk is reproduced below

Last weekend at the Royal Wedding in Windsor we had a remarkable demonstration of the power of the preached Word of God. I cannot remember a Christian sermon receiving such universal acclaim across the religious, political and social spectrums. And for me, what was most striking was the simplicity of the message, going to the heart of the Gospel of love. Bishop Michael Curry had been flown in especially for the occasion and some suggested that he stole the show and was the ‘man of the match’.

Eucharist is…Personal Vocation

Our sending out from Mass reminds us that we were changed too by our Baptism in which we received a call from God that is both universal and personal. That is our call to holiness and we are nourished in the Eucharist so that we can respond to that universal vocation by living in the way our personal vocation demands of us. With Blessed John Henry Newman, we can pray at Mass that many people will be open to the call of God in their lives.

Eucharist is… Real Presence


At Mass or when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for our adoration, Jesus Christ is present with us because he told us he would be. His presence shows the truth of his words recorded right at the end of Saint Matthew’s Gospels when he told us to know he is with us always. Jesus is present, but that presence demands something of us too: our presence. At Mass we are present at the Last Supper.

Adoremus National Eucharistic Pilgrimage & Congress 2018

Eucharist is… pilgrimage

The culmination of a pilgrimage may be a Mass, but the source and summit of any week as a Catholic Christian is the Eucharist.We don’t have to journey with passport and suitcase to find the healing that we need, the healing of forgiveness and inclusion in God’s family.We just have to journey to church for Mass. 

Adoremus National Eucharistic Pilgrimage & Congress 2018

Eucharist is… thanksgiving

When we give thanks at Mass, the past is renewed, the present is transformed, and the future is made already present.  In this thanksgiving, hope is generated by recalling past mercies.  What we know from the past of the power and love of God gives us confidence in the continued mercy of God despite whatever may be going on in our lives to try us
