“The Gift of Life”

19 Aug 2012 by SHRCChurch, No Comments »

One Mayo Clinic heart recipient said; “The gift of life is priceless.  I think of my donor every day.”  Consider this in relation to receiving communion at Mass.

“Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life.  Yes, that word is really “has” – eternal life now!  Many Christians, including some Catholics, consider receiving the Eucharist as a remembrance of something that happened many years ago.  Listen again, “…unless you eat…” and “whoever eats…”

What is in your mind as you receive?  Do you think of your Donor every day?
