“It is the ultimate prayer”

I have been attending daily Mass for about 35 years. It is the ultimate prayer, a very deep connection to Jesus in His Word and receiving Him in the Blessed Sacrament. 

Jesus calls each of us to this: ‘He who eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood has Eternal Life’ (Jn 6:54). Also, ‘Whoever eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood remains in Me and I in him’ (Jn 6:56). 

There’s a little secular jingle that applies to the nourishment of our souls: ‘If what you eat is what you are, eat a lot and you’ll go far.’ 

Mass is a means of developing and deepening my relationship with Jesus. So often the words of Scripture speak directly to a current issue I am encountering. He gives me insight as to how to proceed. Jesus is emblazoned on my heart and yet during the day I forget to call upon Him (my help is in the name of the Lord) and I try to handle issues on my own terms. Usually failing!! 

Living in a post-Christian era is very challenging. What do I say? How do I say it? I feel the absence of the Lord in the public square. But I feel uniquely prepared to bring Him back, to make His presence known through my witness. 

I receive graces to go forth and proclaim the Lord, hopefully restoring others' desire to have a relationship with Jesus. 

One of my missions is to give out Mass cards for birthdays, memorials, thinking of you, and encouragement. I give these special cards even to people who are not Catholic or Christian. It’s an acclamation: This is the best prayer that can be said for your intentions. 

I also have the privilege of bringing our Lord to my homebound Mom.
