Holy Eucharist

You need to read the whole chapter of John 6 to understand what is meant by "They walked no more with Him." If you do you should clearly see that Jesus is talking about those that refuse to eat His Body and drink His Blood. That is what the chapter is mainly about. It is not symbolic.

Just recently while looking through the Fathers of the Church I noticed that there is an English copy of the Liturgy of James, the Liturgy of Mark and the Liturgy of the Blessed Apostles. The Liturgy is what is said in the Holy Mass. Just like the Latin Mass of today or the English or vernacular Mass of today the priest in these three old Liturgies above says something like this, speaking of the Holy Spirit "That coming, by His holy and good and glorious appearing, He may sanctify this bread, and make it the holy body of Your Christ."

The Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist has been offered daily for just about 2,000 years.

When the priest holds the Eucharist high, like this image below Catholics say (not aloud) the same thing that doubting Thomas said when he finally realized and believed,

                                    "My Lord and my God"

Also in John 6 when Jesus asks His apostles "Will you also go away?" Simon Peter answered him: "Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life."

I would like to invite everyone to attend a Catholic Mass at least one time in your life. I think you will realize that it is not the nasty thing that you have been told it is. Please be reverent if you do for you will be in the presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ. You won't rightfully be able to receive the Holy Eucharist without going to the Sacrament of Reconciliation before hand, but if you go up with your arms crossed on your chest like the young children do the priest will bless you.

God bless
Mike

Beautiful hub MakeMoney about 'faith' and I believe firmly believe so that in praying through the presence of the Holy Spirit, we can better understand that it is in one's deep faith in Jesus that we are healed in abiding by God's words of love, mercy and forgiveness, and that by his grace, we may be healed as we partake of God's sacred body and blood in Jesus, in holy communion.

Your alias intrigues me, Make Money, although for me, it tells me that money is just one of the many material things in this world where God in Jesus may be glorified. Amen. Blessings.

Thanks Edwinoel. Glad you like it. And well said.

Actually I joined HubPages to try to make some money. That's why I picked the name that I did. But I haven't made a dime with it. lol So I figured that I'd use it to try to spread our Holy Faith with some Hubs. Call me Mike if you like Edwinoel. God bless.
