VERY short post as copied from my facebook account today after a night of very good reading.
Spent some time reading St. Thomas Aquinas last night (without distractions) and realized what was missing in society today. His writings are like taking vitamins for the mind and intellect.
St. Thomas Aquinas, pray for us
22 While they were eating, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, and said, “Take it; this is my body.” 23 Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, and they all drank from it. 24 He said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many. 25 Amen, I say to you, I shall not drink again the fruit of the vine until the day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” 26 Then, after singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. Mark 14 22:26
Eucharist: the Greek noun εὐχαριστία (eucharistia), meaning “thanksgiving”
For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” (1 Corinthians 11:23-24)
Is thankful our Lord called me when He did. Is thankful our Lord pulled me from the pit and cleaned me off. Is thankful Mama Mary said yes and gave us the model of faith in God to become Handmaids of the Lord. Is thankful our Lord corrects me and comforts me but most of all, forgives me. Is thankful our Lord is our Lord, our God and our King.
Thank you Lord.
