LIVING OUR FAITH 

Virtue of the Month: Piety

Saint of the Month: St. Seraphina

 

We depend on God, whether we like to believe it or not.  God gave us the Eucharist to nourish us in ways that we cannot completely understand nor feel.  Can you feel your heart beat?  Can you count the currents going through your body and brain allowing you to see the words on this page?  Why then do some doubt the working of the Lord in the Eucharist?  The martyr Saturninus (AD 305) was being cross-examined on the accusation that he had taken part in the forbidden assembly (Mass) on Sunday, to which he answered:  "Without the Sunday Eucharist, we cannot live.  Do you not know that the Christian exists for the Eucharist and the Eucharist for Christians?"
