Novena Day 5 + St. Francis and the Eucharist

Celebrating the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ while unable to attend Mass in person and receive the Precious Sacrament is perhaps the most difficult part of being Catholic during this pandemic. While we wait for good health to return to our families, friends and neighbours so we can again worship together, let us take this opportunity to really reflect on the Body and Blood of Christ. Perhaps this time away from receiving the Sacrament will increase our appreciation and anticipation for this miracle! It is so easy for actions to become commonplace and to lose their wonder and awe, let us allow the Spirit to rekindle in us the fire of grace we receive in the Eucharist.

Today we invite you to read an article reflecting on the importance of the Eucharist for St. Francis of Assisi. You can read this very interesting reflection produced by Franciscan Media by clicking the button below.
