Bishop Calls Catholics “Home” to Eucharist

“How I have longed to celebrate this Passover with you” (Luke 22:15). When people ask, “Why should we go to Mass?” I answer, “Because Jesus is waiting for you there in the Church, and He wants to be with you — right there — in the Holy Eucharist.” It is about a personal encounter with Jesus that we have as individuals AND as a community, in the celebration of the Mass. The celebration of the Eucharist is the time and place where we can allow Christ to love us, and we can return His love.

Knowing this, how could anyone stay away?

Return to the Eucharist

El Obispo llama a los catolicós “hogar” a la Eucaristía

“Cómo he anhelado celebrar esta Pascua con ustedes” (Lucas 22:15). Cuando la gente pregunta: “¿Por qué debemos ir a Misa?”, yo respondo: “Porque Jesús te está esperando allí en la Iglesia, y quiere estar contigo —allí mismo— en la Sagrada Eucaristía”. Se trata de un encuentro personal con Jesús que vivimos como individuos Y como una comunidad, en la celebración de la Misa. La celebración de la Eucaristía es el momento y el lugar en el cual podemos permitirle a Cristo que nos ame, y podemos devolverle Su amor.

Sabiendo esto, ¿cómo podría alguien permanecer alejado?
