At The Foot Of The Cross

If you are a Eucharistic Catholic, you are united with Jesus and other faithful believers in a way that transcends both space and time (John 20:24-29).

JESUS APPEARS …

In today’s Gospel, Jesus appears. First, he was not in the room with the disciples, and then he was. The door was locked the entire time, but that didn’t stop Him. He now had a new kind of flesh. He was in his eternal body.

THE CHRIST OF THE EUCHARIST …

It is this same flesh and blood that we eat at the mass. And it is this same divine life that we consume when we remember Him in the Holy Eucharist (Mark 14:22-24). He tells us that we do not have that life if we do not eat His flesh and drink His blood (John 6:51).

Jesus is the only source of this divine life. The Holy Eucharist is the only way we can participate. There is no Plan B for the divine life. It is not a multiple-choice covenant that Jesus made with His Church in the Upper Room and on Calvary.

UNITED AT HIS CROSS …

In the Holy Eucharist, we all stand together at the foot of the cross. We are there beside Mary, the mother of Jesus, the one who never left his side (John 19:25-27).

When was the last time you stood at the foot of His cross? People do it every day in the Catholic Church. You can do it too!
