This month, Fr Edward Wood from the Blessed Sacrament Community, Melbourne wrote a succulent piece about having a quiet moment with God in the Eucharist entitled “Stillness and the Eucharist: Heart speaks to heart in the Eucharistic Presence“.
He described a straight forward approach on how to enter into the proper state of mind to engage God and mediate on his divine presence. We might need to feel the urge to speak and “to be thinking grand thoughts” but actually we do not. For God’s presence is for you and in you … for in the stillness you will recognise him.
Resurrection – Piero della Francesca
The Lord has indeed risen, alleluia. Glory and Kingship be his for ever and ever.
To all Christian readers out there, may the joy and blessings of the triumphant Risen Lord come and remain vividly in your life. Happy blessed and holy Easter, everyone!
Like to discover sacred music to accompany the Easter season experience? I recommend ABC Classic FM’s For the God who Sings program. This week’s selection recreated the anticipation and the joys associated with the Easter vigil mass. For the Church no longer moans for the death of her spouse - the Christ. Christ has conquered death and he now lives among the Church. May the lighted Paschal (Easter) Candle rekindle your faith and the sense of hope. Amen.
