This should be an easy sell to my audience. In fact those two should not even be in the same atmosphere, let alone the same sentence.
Instead of bemoaning the misery of so-called “gay pride,” I thought it might be a great idea to celebrate Sunday by extolling the wondrous miracles from God related to His Sacred Heart in the Most Holy Eucharist.
Behold Eucharistic Miracles!
Curiosity piqued? Perhaps you would like reading material?
Also, this one written by a friend of mine . . .
So, I hope that inspires you to take a break from “Gay Pride” to bask in the glory of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Today is the external solemnity of the Feast of Corpus Christi. What better time to honor Him with thanksgiving for the most precious gift of His body, blood, soul, and divinity.
Today is Maundy Thursday, which commemorates Our Lord’s institution of the Holy Eucharist.
Perhaps as we start see the collapse of the “Enlightenment” way of thinking, including the empty spirituality of Protestantism, we can not only ditch the state, but ditch rationalism, scientism, modern & post-modernism, and re-embrace the supernatural. Our Lord’s gift of His body, blood, soul, and divinity in the Eucharist is the greatest and most visible example of the supernatural.
If you can’t make it to a good liturgy today, consider spending an hour in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. If that’s not possible, at least reflect upon the reality of the Eucharist by reading what has comed from the Church Fathers and saints.
“Christ is present. The One [Christ] who prepared that [Holy Thursday] table is the very One who now prepares this [altar] table. For it is not a man who makes the SACRIFICIAL GIFTS BECOME the Body and Blood of Christ, but He that was crucified for us, Christ Himself. The priest stands there carrying out the action, but the power and the grace is of God, “THIS IS MY BODY,” he says. This statement TRANSFORMS the gifts. ” (St. John Crysostom – Homilies on Treachery of Judas 1:6)
