Meditation on the Healing presence of Christ through Holy communion
I am the Living Bread
Jesus said, he who eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, abides in me and I in him. (John 6:54)
The healing Christ comes to us through holy communion, to heal us, forgive us , to restore us, to make us whole!.
ST Thresa of Avila asks us,
If while he went about the world the sick were healed by merely
touching his clothes
"How can we doubt that he will work miracles when he is within us, if we have faith, or that he will give us what we ask of him since he is in our house? His Majesty is is not wont to offer too little payment for his lodging if we treat him well."
Through the gift your body and blood I pray that you will make us whole. Touch the cancer in our bodies and deny its power, relieve those who who have pain and comfort all who mourn. We trust in you. We love you and welcome to our house.
