My Mom's Love of the EUCHARIST

I am a witness to my Mother’s Love of the EUCHARIST. I remember how when I was a kid my mom would encourage everyone at home on Sundays to go to the village chapel and there attend the Liturgy of the Word, since in our place where I grew up at that time the priest could only visit ones a year. But the community gathered every Sunday for the “mass.” Later when we transferred to the City my mom would wake up very early in the morning and would attend and serve mass at our Parish. As a catechist I saw here many times teaching children and preparing them for First Communion. Now at 83, on Sundays she hears masses on TV from EWTN and other Local channels. That’s an example of an undying Love for the Eucharist. A Love for the Lord. A model and reminder for you and me as we celebrate CORPUS CHRISTI.

This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.

"Leaps of Faith"

"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
