"Love One Another!" 16/2010 → Catholic Church
We encounter the Risen Jesus most fully in the Eucharist–our greatest treasure. Jesus, who is present in the sacrament, shares with us the fruits of His victory over sin, Satan, and death. He gives us the gift of eternal life.
The following are extracts from a message, which Jesus conveyed to a Rumanian nun who secretly adored Him in the Eucharist during the period of communist persecution in Rumania. Jesus addresses these words to each and every one of us.
Jesus in the Eucharist
“I worship the Father here, in the Eucharist. This was my main reason for establishing the sacrament. I honor the Father, but you do not honor me at all! These words, which I once addressed to the Jewish people, I also address to people of the present time. They express the painful contradiction between my Eucharistic life–so fraught with the worshiping and the glorifying of the Father–and man’s disbelief and indifference toward the Father and Myself. If the spirit of adoration, the desire to give God His due respect, the eagerness to worship, honor, and glorify the Eternal Creator–if these things have grown weak in the world, it is because the world does not worship Me in the Eucharist. Whoever does not give honor to the Son, honors not the Father! So worship Me in the Blessed Sacrament and, through Me, you will worship the Father also.
“Worship Me in the Eucharist as God and Man, the Incarnate Word, the Mediator, the Savior, your Friend and Bridegroom, your Life. Worship My divinity and My humanity, My soul, My divine Heart, My Body, and My Blood. Let your bond with the Eucharist be as deep as can be, and I will lead you into that stream of everlasting adoration, which My Eucharistic Heart directs toward the Father. The world does not know or acknowledge the Father. I speak of this in my prayer: “Father, the world does not know you, but I know you” (John 17: 25). For two thousand years I have been saying in the Eucharist, “Father, I glorify You on earth. The task You entrusted to Me, I have fulfilled” (cf.
John 17: 4). Today–especially today–the word of My Gospel goes out into the world, addressing all the people of our time: “You know neither Me nor the Father! If you knew Me, you would know the Father too!” (cf. John 14: 7).
“I bring glory to the Father; above all, in the Eucharistic sacrifice. Holy Mass is the supreme act of worship, which I offer up to the Father; the highest form of giving glory, which I, as God-Man, offer to the Father, the Lord of heaven and earth, on behalf of all the people of our time. So join with Me during Holy Mass, so as to worship the Father with Me. Join with My Mother, with the whole Church, with all mankind, with heaven and earth, with the angels and saints. And adore also on behalf of those who worship neither Me nor the Father, on behalf of the unhappy, misguided sinners and disbelievers. Through the Immaculate Heart of My Mother, the perfect Worshiper of the Eucharist, join with Me, the Supreme Worshiper of the Blessed Trinity, in the solemn moment of My sacrifice, at the moment of the consecration, and especially upon receiving Me in Holy Communion. Then you will have within you the One, Who honors the Father. Make yours this eternal adoration, which I offer to the Father within you under Eucharistic appearances.
“My real presence in the Eucharist is an active presence. When I come to you in sacramental Holy Communion, I give the glory, honor, and constant worship that is due to the Infinite Godhead, to the One Indivisible Trinity–and I do this in your soul, in your heart, with all My Being in union with yours.
“My real presence in the tabernacle is that same reality which is manifested at Holy Mass after the consecration. I never cease to give glory to the Father in every tabernacle on every altar of the world. I desire to unite you and all people in this infinite work of ceaseless Eucharistic adoration through the mediation of the Immaculate Heart and under the direction of the Church.
“All adoring souls give unceasing glory to God on earth. They give glory to the Blessed Trinity in the Eucharist. When they say to Me, “Jesus, I worship You,” their worship is directed also to the Father; for, the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father. We are One in the Godhead–in the Divine Being.”
Prayer of Eucharistic worship
Jesus! I worship you in the Eucharist; in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the entire Work of Adoration, the whole Church, all of mankind, the Holy Father–your deputy on earth–along with the bishops, priests, religious, and the faithful of the whole world. I worship you; together with heaven and earth, the angels and saints, and all the rational beings of the world. I also worship and glorify you on behalf of those who do not worship you, who, on the contrary, deny your existence, who profane and offend you. I worship and glorify you on their behalf, so that, thanks to your grace, they may also worship you in the Most Holy Eucharist. May earth and all of mankind become the kingdom of your Eucharistic Heart through the Immaculate and Most Chaste Mother who worships your Heart. I join myself with you, the Divine Worshiper of the Father and the Most Blessed Trinity. You are the Head of the mystical body, the invisible Head of the Church–the Head of mankind, which your blood redeemed. In union with all the souls in heaven and on earth, I offer you to the Father in a continuous act of adoration, glorification, and worship of the Blessed Trinity.
Heavenly Father, accept Jesus your Son in the Eucharist. Accept, along with His worship, the adoration of the Mother of God and, through her, Mother of souls, the universal adoration of the Church, of humanity, of the religious congregations, of my own; in short, the adoration of your entire Work.
Be glorified for ever, O Most Blessed Trinity, by the Eucharistic Jesus! Be glorified by all mankind, by all the nations of the world, by all the religious orders, by the good and the bad. Be glorified and worshiped, Almighty Father, Creator of heaven and earth and all that is visible and invisible. Be worshiped, O Jesus, Incarnate Word, Son of the Eternal Father, Savior of the world. Be glorified, O Holy Spirit, Love of the Father and the Son, Sanctifier of souls! Be glorified, O Blessed Trinity, the One, Uncreated, and Infinite God. I glorify and worship you, O Eucharist! I abide in your presence like a lamp on the altar. I worship you with an open and humble heart. I contemplate you hidden in the Sacrament of Love, O Mystery of the Incarnation and Redemption!
Eternal God, teach me to give you glory with words and with silence, with song and acts of worship, with all that I say and all that I live by in my solitude and total devotion. I am too little to understand the full meaning of rendering you glory. Therefore, I have recourse to your infinite goodness and beg you: make of me, my life, the Church, all adoring congregations and their members–worshipers of your eternal glory. Only then will we be what you desire us to be around the Eucharist and at the foot of your altar. We will be loving victims offered up to your glory.
Mother of God, I entrust my entire self to you. Make of me a heart that loves as does your Heart and the pierced Heart of Jesus. May my whole being together with you, with the Church, with all the priests, religious, and faithful of the Church always render glory to God. May I always sing forth:
“Glory to God in the highest, and peace to His people on earth. Lord God heavenly King, almighty God and Father, we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory” (To be continued).
