Indeed, Earth is joined to Heaven each time we are united with the Saints and Angels in extolling God, Who, in worship we see, if not with the sight of eyes, then with the eyes of faith.
We are called to abide in the Eucharistic Presence of our Lord, like the Saints and Angels do in Heaven, as they behold the glory of God, and sing His Praise! The Saints and Angels wait upon the Lord, and do His Will in all things. Their presence magniﬁes the Lord. They also intercede for us before the Lord.
When we look upon the Sacred Host, we look at Jesus, the Son of God. Do we see Him in all His glory and majesty? Do our lips proclaim His praise? Do our souls magnify the Lord – making Him clearer, more in focus, and larger to others around us? Do we place the needs of others before Him? Are we open to the Will of God, and strive for perfection in our spiritual lives so that we, too, may one day join the company of Saints in Heaven?
It is at this moment when we are most intimately in communion with God that we experience a taste of Heaven, a foreshadowing of what it will be like, when, by God’s grace, we enter into everlasting life. “Indeed, this is the will of My Father, that everyone who looks upon the Son and believes in Him, shall have eternal life. Him I will raise up on the last day.” (–Jn 6:40).
Do something special during this upcoming Summer, please consider coming to Eucharistic Adoration on Thursdays at 2PM. Come, bring your whole family, spend some time with the Lord, and receive His blessings!
He is waiting for you!
