The Eucharist, the greatest Wonder of God

by Father A. Joiron

Humbly prostrate before the sacred altars, I unite myself with the Angels of the sanctuary, and I adore with them in profound reverence Jesus Christ, my Lord and my God, truly and substantially present under the sacramental species. I firmly believe, without any doubt, without any hesitation, that the priest of Jesus Christ has received the ineffable power to change by his fruitful word the substance of the bread and the substance of the wine into the Body and Blood of the Savior Jesus, as He resides at the right hand of His Father, in the splendor of Heaven, though He remains hidden.

This mystery, it is true, imposes silence on my senses, astonishes and surpasses my reason. But the lights of faith are infinitely superior to those of my senses and my reason. My heart submits to it with joy. For the Eucharist reminds it of all that God has deigned to do for man, of all that Christ has done for his salvation; it perpetuates before my eyes the exercise of divine love, in its highest, most vivid and most tender form.

The greatest Gift of God

The Holy Eucharist is truly the greatest marvel that God has made; it is the Church’s treasure par excellence.

Through it we offer to the Lord a sacrifice of infinite value, which pays to His majesty the tribute of praise, thanksgiving, atonement and petition which we owe Him. It unites man to God, earth to Heaven, through a divine Mediator. If the Eucharist were taken away from us, man’s prayer could no longer be heard, because the cry of his misery and iniquities would be more powerful than his supplication; we could no longer hope in mercy, and we would only have to wait for the terrible effects of justice. But the voice of the Lamb who immolates Himself on the Eucharistic altar covers all other voices; it calls everywhere, even in purgatory, for forgiveness and blessings. Who can understand, O God, how high the dignity and value of Christian worship is raised by the virtue of the august sacrifice?

Jesus Christ, Our Lord, immolated on the altar, also wants to remain among us in the sacrament of the Eucharist. He voluntarily makes Himself the companion of our exile, by condemning Himself to the prison of the tabernacle. It is there that He makes Himself easily accessible to all of us, in order to receive our homage and welcome our requests. It is there that He continues to instruct us and to serve as our model. He shows Himself as our friend, our counsel, our physician, our comforter. At any time of the day or night, we can approach Him. But although we are absent, His divine gaze follows us everywhere: in the midst of the apparent rest to which He has subjected Himself, His Heart is for us in perpetual and merciful activity. It is He who provides for all our needs, and prevents our desires.

What immense glory does the presence of this divine King bring to our temples, to whom we give hospitality! The great glory of Solomon’s temple, the shining figure of our churches, disappears and fades away before this august and incomparable reality. With how much eagerness and respect I must come to this vestibule of Heaven, to taste there the ineffable delights of the conversation of the Savior Jesus!

So far, this is only the beginning of divine favors. It is in the union with us that Jesus Christ Our Lord finds the consummation of His love in the sacrament of the Eucharist. His purposes are fully accomplished only when we have received Him through Holy Communion. Then God truly gives Himself to us; He becomes our food; we incorporate Him into ourselves; and the union is made so intimate, that we are transformed into Him, and live in Him. In communion, He is our strength and our support, He pours into us torrents of grace, He gives us the pledge of resurrection, the first fruits of blessed eternity, a foretaste of Heaven; for Heaven is a communion that lasts forever.

Thanksgiving

O eternal Father, I thank You that You so loved the world that You gave it Your only Son, not only once, but that You give Him perpetually, under the veils of the sacrament, at all times and everywhere, until the consummation of the ages.

O eternal Son, I thank You for the humiliations and annihilations of the altar, to which You condemn Yourself for my sake. I admire how You instituted the Holy Eucharist, to be the ineffable complement of the mystery of the Incarnation, in order to unite You and give You to each one of us in particular, after having united You and given You to humanity in general.

O Holy Spirit, I thank You, the infinite love by whom these admirable designs of mercy and tenderness were conceived and directed. It is You who vivifies the word of the priest, and gives him the marvelous power to produce the holy Eucharist; it is You who maintains on the altar the divine fire where the august Victim is consumed in the ardors of charity. It is You who prepare our hearts to dispose them to the visit of Jesus; it is You who help Him in the dispensation of His graces in our souls.

O God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who give me the sacrament of the Eucharist by unanimous agreement and purpose, be praised, be blessed for ever and ever. Let me begin in this mortal life the hymn of gratitude that I hope to continue in Heaven in union with Mary, with the Angels, with the Saints. I want to adore and thank You with all of them.

O Eucharist, of all the sacraments the first in order of dignity and excellence, it is from You as from their source that the graces which are contained in them all derive. You are the Blessed Sacrament, the Sacrament of love, the Sacrament par excellence. You are the center where all religion comes to an end. You are, in the Church, the focus of light and warmth that communicates clarity and life everywhere. If the material sun which illuminates this visible world were suddenly to be extinguished or disappear, we would fall back into the horror of a deep night, and every creature would perish from freezing. If the Eucharist were to fail, the world of souls would fall back into darkness, and the cold of death would freeze all hearts: then would come the end of all things. Stay therefore with us, O Supreme Good!

Hail and love to Thee, “O sacred feast, in which Jesus is given to me: the memory of His Passion is honored; the soul is filled with grace, and I receive the pledge of future glory.” (Hymn: O sacrum convivium)
