As we spend time with Jesus in these most pivotal days, Father Michael invites us to contemplate what it means for the Lord to take you, to bless you, to break you, and to give you to others. Hear how Jesus won Father Michael over in the same manner by taking him, blessing him, and especially breaking him. May Father Michael’s encounter, just like the apostles’ encounter with Jesus, move us to go deeper into stepping into our identity as Eucharistic People.
It’s amazing that everyone who met Jesus didn’t immediately fall at His feet and worship Him. His divinity was hidden in ordinary human flesh. Why then should we expect anything different with the Eucharist? Listen as we grow to see that God’s hiddenness in the Eucharist is utterly consistent with who God is!

How God is with us in the Eucharist
Through the sacrament of the Eucharist, Jesus gives us himself in a radical way.
