Nov 29 (Lk 10:21-24)

Some things in life are too beautiful to be forgotten…

>> Some things in life are too precious to be overlooked…

>> Some things in life are too meaningful to be avoided…
When one realizes the value of such things which are beautiful, precious & meaningful, life undergoes great transformation & conversion.

But the tragedy is that very often…

…such things fail to receive their due attention and honour

…such things fail to be accorded their deserving consideration and respect.
Among these things… the one which ranks as the best and the highest is the Holy Eucharist!

Today we shall consider the Gospel Passage from a Eucharistic perspective.
The Lord in today’s Gospel emphatically declares to His disciples:

“Blessed are the eyes, that see, what you see!” (Lk 10: 23)

When humanity sinned against God, He chose not to abandon the world, but rather promised a Saviour and Redeemer.
This Messiah was awaited for many centuries.

>> Many righteous people were eagerly waiting for His coming… 

>> Many Holy Prophets had prophesied His coming…

But when finally, He came, none recognized Him.
He was in the world and the world came to be through Him, but the world did not know Him.

>> He came to what was His own, but His own people did not accept Him (Jn 1: 10-11)
This was the most tragic of all twists…

God sought to write a perfect script for humanity. 

>> But human beings, by their disobedience and pride, chose to malign this script.

And yet, God in His divine plan, sent a Hero to rescue the world.

>> But humans, once again, sought to tamper with God’s script, by not recognizing the Messiah!
The disciples were, however, given the special privilege to behold the Messiah!

>> This is why the Lord, in today’s Gospel, tells to His disciples, “Blessed are the eyes, that see, what you see!” (Lk 10: 23)

This Messiah is very much living and present in our world, in the Most Holy Eucharist.
Do we recognize and acknowledge this mighty and powerful presence of the Eucharistic Lord?

Our personal lives come into contact with daily struggles…

>> Rising Prices of essentials commodities…

>> Family fights and disturbances… 

>> Misunderstanding among relationships… 

>> Cancers of alcoholism, drugs and smoking… 

>> Battling of sicknesses and diseases… 

>> Tendency to give up the vocation to which we are called into…
We have got our own battles to fight…

>> We have got our own stories to tell….
In the midst of these daily scuffles and struggles of life, the Holy Eucharist ought to be the strength and support of our lives.

When we face financial crises and issues of economy and wealth…

>> Let us run to the Holy Eucharist, the supplier of every need and necessity.
When we face problems and cracks in our relationships…

>> Let us run to the Holy Eucharist, the unifier and connector of every bond.
When we face unacceptable behaviours and unhealthy habits…

>> Let us run to the Holy Eucharist, the One who can bring about true transformation.
When we face life-crippling sicknesses and paralysing diseases…

>> Let us run to the Holy Eucharist, the healer and fountain of every consolation.

The Holy Eucharist may not give us a perfect answers or solutions in the way we expect.

>> The Holy Eucharist may not give us immediate responses and remedies in the manner we want.
But the Holy Eucharist will most certainly…

… strengthen us with grace and power to face the challenges with courage.

… infuse us with a deep and intense authority to defy any difficulties that we meet.

… empower us with immense joy and peace in order to withstand the storms of life.

The Lord waits for us day in and day out, in the Holy Eucharist.

>> Many turn to false philosophies in search of real joy.

>> Many turn to unhealthy spiritualities in search of true peace.

>> Many turn to unbecoming habits in search of lasting consolations.
We, however, are a chosen people… blessed with the grace to see, receive, worship and love the Eucharist.

>> The Eucharist will give us real joy… 

>> The Eucharist will give us true peace… 

>> The Eucharist will give us lasting consolation.

In the language of economics…

… It will be a big loss if we fail to tap on the mighty resource of the Holy Eucharist.
In the language of chemistry… 

… It will be a big disaster if we fail to make use of the precious catalyst of the Holy Eucharist.
In the language of sociology… 

… It will be a big tragedy if we fail to build on the valuable relationship with the Holy Eucharist.
In the language of physics… 

… It will be a big failure if we fail to swing to our advantage the mechanism of the Holy Eucharist.

The Holy Eucharist is a wonderful memorial that is too beautiful to be forgotten…

>> The Holy Eucharist is a valuable gift that is too precious to be overlooked…

>> The Holy Eucharist is a glorious treasure that is too meaningful to be avoided…
Let us the value of this beautiful, precious and meaningful Fortune and undergo a great transformation and conversion.

>> May we become a people who love and cherish the Holy Eucharist, and thus hear our Divine Lord telling us: “Blessed are the eyes, that see, what you see!”

God Bless ! Live Jesus!
