Ditch The State – Love . . . The Most Holy Eucharist!

Today is Maundy Thursday, which commemorates Our Lord’s institution of the Holy Eucharist.

Perhaps as we start see the collapse of the “Enlightenment” way of thinking, including the empty spirituality of Protestantism, we can not only ditch the state, but ditch rationalism, scientism, modern & post-modernism, and re-embrace the supernatural. Our Lord’s gift of His body, blood, soul, and divinity in the Eucharist is the greatest and most visible example of the supernatural.

If you can’t make it to a good liturgy today, consider spending an hour in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. If that’s not possible, at least reflect upon the reality of the Eucharist by reading what has comed from the Church Fathers and saints.

Christ is present. The One [Christ] who prepared that [Holy Thursday] table is the very One who now prepares this [altar] table. For it is not a man who makes the SACRIFICIAL GIFTS BECOME the Body and Blood of Christ, but He that was crucified for us, Christ Himself. The priest stands there carrying out the action, but the power and the grace is of God, “THIS IS MY BODY,” he says. This statement TRANSFORMS the gifts. ”
(St. John Crysostom – Homilies on Treachery of Judas 1:6)

Here’s also a good reflection by Dr. Scott Hahn, a convert from Protestantism to Catholicism.
