September 4, 2013: A Burst of Eucharistic Energy

~ by Mary Galvano

People nowadays seem to need more ways to stay awake and keep going throughout their day. You see advertisements on television for energy drinks that will act like caffeine but, claim they are not caffeine causing no side effects and are non-addictive. It makes me wonder how “non-addictive” these drinks really are. When in fact what is really needed is more sleep.

Americans especially like to over-work to get ahead of the other person and in doing so lack of rest is a result. In most European countries taking a “siesta” is still a part of a person’s day. It is important to work hard for these Europeans but, it is also important to take a break and regain one’s energy and focus. Wouldn’t that be a nice thing to do in this country? As it still stands, Americans will still be Americans.

There is however, another powerful energy supplement that works wonders. The only thing that one has to be careful with is that is does indeed have side effects. In fact the more you partake in it the more you need it. It has mystical powers that can be life changing. It can heal one physically, emotionally, and even spiritually. What is this miraculous supplement? It is the Eucharist.

It happens every time. Whenever I spend time in front of the Blessed Sacrament I find myself with energy I didn’t have before. Even though I am more at peace and resting in the Lord I am amazed to find myself needing less sleep at night, automatically waking up early the next morning full of energy and ready for the day. The Eucharist is a true energy supplement. Spend time in front of the Blessed Sacrament and you will see for yourself.

In the days Jesus walked the earth people flocked to Him for healing. They knew just a word or a touch from Him and they were cured. Catholics have never lost sight of God’s power to heal. Over the centuries to today pilgrims travel to places like the Marian shrines in Lourdes, France and Medjugorje where extraordinary physical healings have been documented. Some pilgrims go simply to experience God’s presence in their lives seeking more of an emotional or spiritual healing. However, there has been a number of extraordinary healings through the Eucharist in tabernacles nearby. These healing testimonies date from the last century and beyond.

Jesus was at work then, just as he was when he walked among us, and just as he is today. Furthermore, these healings were not the result of a pilgrimage to any shrine reputed for its healing ministry. These healings were the direct result of a deep faith in the healing power of the Eucharist.

The Eucharist generates strength. In fact, long ago Holy Communion was called “the bread of the strong.” The grind of daily life may often overtax our energy to the point that we find ourselves bending from the strain. Yet, Jesus comes to us in the Eucharist with his mighty grace and energizes us, renews us, and strengthens us, enabling us to take up our cross daily and follow him. (The Healing Power of the Eucharist: John H. Hampsch C.M.F.).

Jesus’ body is more sacred than anything on Earth that we can behold.

We do not have to take pilgrimages to faraway places in order to experience His personal touch of healing power.

You can find something greater in your own parish…

The living person of Jesus.
