Christ put on the cloak of humanity for his 33 years on earth, being present to us physically, and constantly reminding us that He had come to serve and not to be served. In the Eucharist, He remains physically present, and humbles Himself even further by serving as our food and drink.

And all he asks in return is our hearts.

 

Reflect

In partaking of the Eucharist, do I sincerely and fully offer my heart in return?
