Frederic Ozanam "The best way to economize time is to 'lose' half an hour each day attending Holy Mass."
Everybody knows what is Holy Eucharist Who is Holy Eucharist ?
Why Jesus came to Earth? “ T o do the will of him who sent me… T he will - I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. F or my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life” John Chapter 6
The promise of Jesus “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” * Conditions Apply Do you want to save your Life ?
1 Cor 11:27 Do you aware about the Conditions?
1 Cor 11:27 “ E veryone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink of the cup. F or those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. T hat is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep”
What do you think ? JESUS really presents in the Holy Eucharist?
What is Eucharistic Miracles ? Throughout the history of the Catholic Church, Jesus has proven beyond any doubt that He is truly present in the Holy Eucharist. Why did HE have to prove this to us ?
The answer is…. It is because at certain times in history, there were heresies that denied the Real Presence in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. On other occasions, some priests doubted the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. And yet, on other occasions, the Holy Eucharist was abused by believers and non-believers alike. Can you identify some Eucharistic miracles ?
Lanciano in ITALY Eucharistic Miracle at Lanciano in 750 at the Church of St. Francis “A monastic priest doubted whether the Body of Our Lord was truly present in the consecrated Host. He celebrated Mass and when he said the words of consecration, he saw the host turn into Flesh and the wine turn into Blood. Everything was visible to those in attendance. The Flesh is still intact and the Blood is divided into five unequal parts which together have the exact same weight as each one does separately.
Be open to Holy Spirit Various Tests In 1970, the Archbishop of Lanciano and the Provincial Superior of the Conventual Franciscans at Abruzzo, with Rome’s approval, requested Dr. Edward Linoli, director of the hospital in Arezzo and professor of anatomy, histology, chemistry, and clinical microscopy, to perform a thorough scientific examination on the relics of the miracle which had occurred twelve centuries earlier.
The Results… The “miraculous Flesh" is authentic flesh consisting of muscular striated tissue of the myocardium. The “miraculous Blood" is truly blood. The chromatographic analysis indicated this with absolute and indisputable certainty. The immunological study shows with certigreattude that the flesh and the blood are human,
Holy spirit will guide you… and the immuno – hematological test allows us to affirm with complete objectivity and certitude that both belong to the same blood type AB – the same blood type as that of the man of the Shroud and the type most characteristic of Middle Eastern populations. The proteins contained in the blood have the normal distribution, in the identical percentage as that of the serous- proteic chart for normal fresh blood. No histological dissection has revealed any trace of salt infiltrations or preservative substances used in antiquity for the purpose of embalming. Professor Linoli also discarded the hypothesis of a hoax carried out in past centuries.
Holy spirit will guide you… This report was published in The Sclavo Notebooks in Diagnostics (Collection #3, 1971) and aroused interest in the scientific world. Also, in 1973, the chief Advisory Board of the World Health Organization appointed a scientific commission to corroborate Linoli’s findings. Their work lasted 15 months and included 500 tests. It was verified that the fragments taken from Lanciano could in no way be likened to embalmed tissue.
YES !!! Christ is alive in the Holy Eucharist……..Do you believe now ? Conclusion of Studies As to the nature of the fragment of flesh, the commission declared it to be living tissue because it responded rapidly to all the clinical reactions distinctive of living beings. Their reply fully corroborated Professor Linoli’s conclusions. In the extract summarizing the scientific work of the Medical Commission of the WHO and the UN, published in Dec in New York and Geneva, declared that science, aware of its limits, has come to a halt, face to face with the impossibility of giving an explanation.
Isaiah 41:9-10 We are his People “ I took you from the ends of the earth; from its farthest corners I called you. I said, 'You are my servant'; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. S o do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”
Quotes by Saints “It has more fruits, if you participate atleast one holy mass with whole heart and mind, rather than somebody may participate for you after your death” "Ask Jesus to make you a saint. After all, only He can do that. Go to confession regularly and to Communion as often as you can,"
St. John Chrysostom The Challenge "How many of you say: I should like to see His face, His garments, His shoes. You do see Him, you touch Him, you eat Him. He gives Himself to you, not only that you may see Him, but also to be your food and nourishment."
St:Jerome Identify the Situation "If Christ did not want to dismiss the Jews without food in the desert for fear that they would collapse on the way, it was to teach us that it is dangerous to try to get to heaven without the Bread of Heaven."
"To be possessed by Jesus and to possess Him - that is the perfect reign of Love." Y ou need bread of life everyday…..go for holy masses everyday….or atleast whenever you can; T he blessing you are receiving from the holy mass is countless… D o not miss the chance to love him… Y ou may not get opportunity tomorrow… Take a decision now itself….Time will not wait for you
