I used to think that the Apostles who walked with Jesus where some of the most blessed people to ever walk the earth. Jesus was right in front of them, but they still managed to miss him in many ways.
While I still think the Apostles had a special blessing, I also realize that we too are blessed and sometimes miss Jesus right in front of us.
Most of us have the opportunity, if we so desire, to receive Jesus every day at Mass. We can be with Jesus in prayer before the Eucharist daily as well if we want. Do we see him?
Mother Teresa used to say that “If we recognize Jesus under the appearance of bread we will have no difficulty recognizing him in the disguise of the suffering poor.”
This is why she could say with her whole heart, “I have an opportunity to be with Jesus 24 hours a day.”
This opportunity isn’t something reserved for holy nuns. Jesus wants you to meet him in the Eucharist. Receive him. Adore him. Be transformed and changed.
