“The Eucharist is the center of my faith”

The Eucharist is the center of my faith, a link between the finite and the infinite. Receiving holy Communion reminds me of who I am and where I am going. It keeps me grounded and focused on the things that really matter. 

My faith in Jesus present in the Eucharist is largely a result of how I feel when I am there in front of Him. All troubles fade away in adoration, or at least become trivial. The peace that washes over me when silently kneeling before Christ is indescribable, something I am very grateful for, but how I feel when I leave is even more remarkable. 

The peace I experience when I am with Him continues even after I leave. I have inner peace and quiet, whatever my struggles are. For the time being they aren’t all-consuming, and any suffering I am experiencing seems to matter, to be worth something. 

My parish has a holy hour once a week and, because I live 25 miles away, it is difficult for me to get there every time. I do, however, make a point of dropping by the parish whenever I am in town, and spending a few minutes in front of the tabernacle before carrying on with my day.
