Have you ever thought what it might be like to be completely surrounded by angels? There are many images of Our Lord, Our Lady, and the saints surrounded by angels. As Catholics, we know that each one of us has a guardian angel who is always with us. But would hosts of angels ever consider surrounding you in the course of your everyday life?
The answer might surprise you. There are actually hosts of angels who are waiting to accompany you in your supernatural life here on earth. These angels are prepared to surround you with every reception of the Eucharist. For worthy reception, we are required to be in good standing with the Church, confess our mortal sins sacramentally, and observe the required Eucharistic fast.
We are Catholic. We truly believe that Jesus is present, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in the Sacred Host. And when properly disposed and prepared, Jesus awaits to become our tremendous Lover in the Eucharist. As you proceed to your pew having received Our Lord in Holy Communion, know that you are being accompanied by angels, guarding the holy tabernacle that you have become.
Ponder: In what ways can you go beyond the minimum requirements to receive the Lord worthily in Holy Communion?
Reflect: Luke 4:10
Pray: Lord, make me a worthy tabernacle for you to reside.
