Message from Father Jason
April 30, 2017
Congratulations to all of our first communicants! This weekend 40 of our children will receive
Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time.

It is always special to see the children approach the sacrament with a hope and expectation,
that most of us, after hundreds of Eucharists may have lost. And yet, we come back to Jesus
over and over as do the crowds in John 6:33, who say to Jesus, “Sir, give us this bread
always.” And blessed are we to have the bread of life, Jesus, always available to us. In the
suburbs, one does not have to travel far to find Mass or a chapel for Eucharistic devotion at
any time on any day. We need not hunger or thirst spiritually, for the bread of life is always
available to nourish our souls.

If you are not familiar with Eucharistic Adoration, I encourage you to look for opportunities to
make it an important part of your spiritual life. I find Adoration time to be important in keeping
me focused on the Lord and it has often helped me to find grace to handle difficult situations.

Our lives are so filled with noise, that just the opportunity to spend a few minutes in quiet
prayer is something for which we all are hungering. The beauty of Adoration is that one does
not have to commit to a time, nor must one try to learn a certain type of prayer. One only
stops in for a few minutes to be with Jesus. Prayers may be recited, or you can just ask Jesus
to help you with your needs, giving your worries and anxieties to Him so that you can
courageously face the noise and business of the day.
Eucharistic Adoration is available at Mary Queen of Heaven on the first Monday of the month.
Stop in any time during the day. Visitation Parish has a perpetual adoration chapel where
adoration is available every day. Many other local parishes offer times of adoration as well.

Please join me in praying for our first communicants, that their first participation would be the
first of many. May they know Jesus’ promise that they will never hunger or thirst if they are
close to Him, the true bread of life.

Fr. Jason
