Day 7: A Eucharistic life
The meaning of our pilgrimage (excerpt from “The Wisdom of the Pilgrim” by Anselm GRUN)
During his walk, man has to change, to turn around, to turn back, to convert, and this all along his life. During the walk, life changes to become one with oneself.
Bible passage: Mt 26, 25-29
During the meal, Jesus took the having taken the bread and say the blessing, broke it and giving it to the apostles told: “Take and eat it: this is my body”.
And with a glass and after saying the blessing, He gave it to them and told : “Drink all of you because this my blood, the Covenant blood poured for the mass in the sins forgiveness.
I told you: from now I won’t anymore drink the vine fruit until the day where I drink, again, with you in my Father’s kingdom”
In the Eucharistic mystery, God through His son Jesus renews His covenant with each one of us. We receive Communion to Jesus’ Body and Blood: to His life for the salvation of the world. Like all the angels, Saint Michael worship in front of what is given to us. Let your life be transformed into Eucharistic life, a life offered and given to our brothers and sisters.
Prayer intention for us
Teach us God true humility and give us the grace to know how poor we are.
Say one “Our Father”, one “Hail Mary” and one “Glory Be to the Father”.
Prayer intention for our country
We pray that our country grows in faith and God brings victory on the devil.
Recite one “Our Father”, one “Hail Mary” and one “Glory Be to the Father”.
Saint Michael, who bring our prayers in front of God, defend us against the devil, deliver us from all attacks. Help us to close all possible open doors to the devil in our hearts and our lives.
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
