When You Approach The Altar
Our parish is where we spend our lives, day after day, week after week, year after year. It's where we go for life-changing celebrations and daily reassurances.
More than anything, though, it's where we go to meet Jesus, fully present in the Eucharist.
This week, when approaching the altar to receive Our Lord, speak to him from your heart. Do your best not to be consumed with distraction (that's the hard part), and remember to thank him for this greatest of gifts when you return to your pew.
You don't have to say a lot – just be sincere.
