Think about it: the God of the universe became a human, died for a bunch of sinners, and then continues to sacrifice himself each mass so that we may have abundant life in this age and in heaven.The most amazing miracle of eternity is performed at each mass!
If we were to attend mass in Africa, China, Italy, or Australia, it would basically be the same experience that we enjoy in America (albeit with some cultural differences, which can make it even more amazing). The Eucharist: as Saint Pope John Paul II said, “The Church draws her life from the Eucharist.
The Church’s emphasis on the mystery of God, his presence among us, and how that should give us repose in our spiritual lives is another aspect that draws me to be Catholic.
We can never hope to fully understand God in all of his glory, but the Catholic Church gives us the ability to at least dwell on the mystery of God and allow ourselves to be allured by his love. Spend an hour in silent adoration of the Eucharist and tell me you don’t feel more peaceful, loved, inspired, and blessed.
I will admit I have had doubts about the “real presence” of Jesus in the Eucharist because of the craziness of the concept, but the evidence is too hard to deny.
And how much more crazy is this than the fact that God is three-in-one or that he became a crying innocent baby?
I heard it put this way once- think about the little things that you might do to show your spouse that you love them: have their favorite coffee ready in the morning, say the words you know they need to hear, volunteer to watch the kids while they nap, give them a message, choose their favorite restaurant instead of your own, or pray with and for them.
