Every month of the year is dedicated to an aspect of our faith worthy of pondering.
The month of APRIL highlights the Blessed Sacrament.
The month of April is dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament, the source and summit of our Christian life. Jesus himself, body, blood, soul, and divinity, is present in the Sacred Host. In a tangible way, Jesus remains with us and is available to us, in our churches and tabernacles. What a great comfort and consolation amid our earthly journey, that we can have such assurance that he never leaves us. In this month, it is fitting to pray for increased faith in Jesus' presence in the Blessed Sacrament. Pray for a deeper love of Jesus and an understanding of his love for us, made known through this sacrament. A wonderful practice in this month is to make regular visits to Jesus in the tabernacle. He never ceases to be available to us, let us make ourselves available to him. Consider committing to visit for 15 minutes once a week, 5 minutes a day, or even signing up for a weekly Holy Hour.
