Sunday Reflection – 6 May – Sixth Sunday of Eastertide B

We Offer to Jesus the Adoration of our Whole Being
By Fr Vincent Martin Luca

Lay your whle being, your faculties and all your works in homage at the foot of the Eucharistic Altar and Throne and say to the Lord:
“To You alone be love and glory!”

Offer Him the homage of your thoughts, desiring the Divine Eucharist to be the dominant thought of your life;
the homage of your affections, calling Jesus, the King and God of your heart;
the homage of your will, desiring henceforth to have no other law,
no other end than His service,
His love
and His glory;
the homage of your memory, in order to remember Him alone and thus to live
in Him,
by Him
and for Him alone.

Then contemplate the greatness of the love of Jesus as He institutes, multiplies and perpetuates His Divine Eucharist, to the end of time.
Marvel at His wisdom in the Divine invention which excites the wonder of the angels themselves.
Praise His power which has triumphed over every obstacle and exalt His goodness,
which has determined the gifts of that power.

On realising that you are the very end of the greatest and the holiest of Sacraments,
break forth into a transport of joy and love,
for you alone,
what He has done for all!
What LOVE!sunday reflection - 6 may - fr vincent luca page 242 come to me

  1. Here’s a keeper for me!  Here’s *the* way to enter into the presence of the Lord, by offering oneself as homage rather than hostage.  At the risk of offending someone, let me say this: one “surrenders” to an enemy.  Offering homage is a decision … a free-will decision … to ally, to put at disposal, to *entrust*.  And homage usually means that the “trustee” has either earned the trust or demonstrated that he or she “can-and-will” honor the integrity of the “giver-and-gift.”  It’s about a mutual obligation, mutual agreement, mutual benefit, mutual respect. AnaStPaul does it again.  I’m off to learn more about another saint about whom I’ve never heard of before.  Many thanks for this post.

  2. Wow Stacy – you never fail to blow me out of a state of rest and into action – brain action and I bless you! What an immense thought and wonderful. I pray others read your comment. A bit about this Fr Luca – he is a Priest completely in love with Christ in the Eucharist and the promotion of Eucharistic Adoration. “For God dwells in the Blessed Sacrament to lighten our burdens and comfort us in our afflictions, strengthening us and encouraging us in our temptations and disappointment by giving us His love, as we pay him homage”. Let us pay Him homage and thank Him for friends too, who support and help us on this narrow path. God bless Stacy!
