God's Message For You Today, April 9, 2008

HEAVEN ON EARTH

"I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst." – John 6:35

"The Mass — and I mean every single Mass — is heaven on earth." That's what Scott Hahn said in his book, The Lamb's Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth.
Even if I try to attend Mass regularly, I sure don't feel that way every time. I get sleepy, distracted, numb. Of course, I also feel great — sometimes.
But I try to attend Mass daily, not because of my feelings, but because I believe I meet Jesus there. When I'm happy, I give thanks. And when I'm tempted or down, then I literally run to Mass for help. Afterwards, I get insight, a sense that everything will turn out right or that I am not alone.
When Jesus promised to nourish us with Himself in the Eucharist, it covered every area of our lives: emotional, spiritual and financial.
Next time we go to church, let's be more aware where we are and Who we're seeing. We might just see heaven come down. Joy Sosoban

REFLECTION:
"It would be easier for the world to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass." (Padre Pio of Pietrelcina)

Don't let me attend Mass only out of duty, Lord. Let me love You in it.
