The Power is in the Eucharist

Today is the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of the Lord. This is something that is unique to the Catholic (and Orthodox) Churches--Being able to take within ourselves, the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord.

Traditionally, today is a day for Eucharistic procession throughout our streets and neighborhoods. I know this is done much more often than it was 30-40 years ago, but the need is still great. Sadly, there are whole generations of Catholics who grew up never seeing a Eucharistic procession, or even Eucharistic Adoration. As Catholics, many of us were (and are) being deprived of our spiritual heritage.

Below is a video called "Jesus in New York" that shows a Eucharistic Procession in the streets of New York.

The Holy Eucharist--the True Power!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
