The Healing Wounds of Jesus

What is your response to this love?

Jesus in EmmausJesus is speaking to you. He is asking you to receive more love from Him than you ever have before. He died for you. He suffered for you. Even if you were the only person on this Earth, He would have done it — for you.

What can you do to receive this love? You can say “yes!” to Him. You can say, “Yes, Jesus, I want You to be my Savior, the Lord of my life. Reveal Your Love to me more than I’ve ever experienced it before. Penetrate Your Love into every part of my life, every part of my being. I am sorry for all the times I have offended You. Please transform me into someone who can fully live in Your Love. Thank You, Jesus!”

The next time you’re in church, look at the Tabernacle. Jesus is physically and powerfully present there. Sit with Him. He longs for you to spend time in His Presence. He misses you when you forget about Him. He has much that He wants to say to you, much love that He wants to give you.

Eucharistic breadWhen you receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist, pause for a moment to thank Jesus for what He did for you during His Passion and Crucifixion. Reflect on the fact that you hold Jesus — not a piece of bread — in your hand and in your mouth! It is His way of continuing to pour out His love!

As Mother Terfesa of Calcutta said, “When you look at the crucifix, you know that He loved you — past tense. But when you look at the Holy Eucharist, you know that He still loves you.”

With such powerful love available in the Eucharist, how can you stay away from Mass? Jesus is saying, “Come, my special friend, come! There is so much more love that I want to give you. Come to Me!”
