30 Days of Gratitude Challenge: Day 21 (Eucharist)

30 Days of Gratitude Challenge: Day 21

The word “Eucharist” means “Thanksgiving”. When you receive communion today, thank God that you can receive the Body of Jesus into your soul.

  1. Yes, the Eucharist is such a beautiful gift!
  2. This made me a little sad though because I have been too afraid to go to church since its an enclosed and crowded space. I’ve only received Communion a few times since March 2020. (It is so helpful to have had the gift of the Act of Spiritual Communion to get me through this time!) And when I have received it has been so overwhelming that I’ve had to hold back tears/keep it together.
  3. The Faith Formation group had a Potluck Brunch. I have braved the world for a few things (outdoors where I can separate myself from others; indoors if small group + mostly people I know). So Nora and I did this and it was nice. It was a low turnout and we sat with our friends. I asked them how the 10am mass was — and they said it was crowded. 😦

As I entered the hall where the potluck was the thought crossed my mind that I could probably brave church, provided it wasn’t too crowded. So to hear it had been crowded made me sad. However, I later realized I think I could possibly brave going to mass again — if I stand/sit out in the vestibule! I’ve done it in the past (when sick) and a few people are out there, but it is definitely airy, open, and not crowded. :: So I am resolved to start going to mass again! 🙂 :: With Advent starting I definitely need to and want to!!

Now, this will get me a step closer to receiving the Eucharist again, though I doubt I’ll be brave enough to go up to Communion during mass since 100s of others will be doing the same. But I do give Thanks for God granting me a peace about being in the Church building with so many others!

It is such a gift to be able to receive the Body of Jesus into my soul! 🙂 I look forward to one day receiving Him again!
