No matter what your calling may be, you were created for sainthood. For holiness. For perfect communion with God, and with others. Don’t be discouraged if you’re still trying to figure out God’s plan for your life. Simply stand still, and let Him move.
Although we recall the mystery of the Eucharist at every liturgy, the feast of Corpus Christi uniquely refocuses our vision. It reminds us all of our poverty and neediness. Spiritually, we cannot live without the nourishment of Christ. And it is by being fed with the Word of God in both the Scriptures and in the Sacrament that we receive life.
Even before God wants us to know that He is almighty, He wants us to know that He is Father. It means that we are precious to Him, that we are made for His kingdom, that we’re each a reflection of Him. It means that He loved us into existence and that He continues to even now.
The influence of a father is far deeper than many realize. A loving and fatherly presence is the greatest testament to the unchanging love of the Father who’s image we all bear: the unwearied Father who runs to us with kisses of great joy, the moment we, though with faltering steps, turn toward him.
No matter your relationship with your earthly father, your heavenly Father relentlessly pursues you and has no plans of ever leaving you alone. He’s ready and waiting for you to run into His arms, to hear His heartbeat against yours, and to feel His beard tickle your cheek.
