Weekly Devotion – June 11thWeekly Devotions
Jesus gave everything for us, even His Body and Blood. Through His sacrificial death, Jesus cancels the debt of our sins and opens to us the new and everlasting covenant of His love. Jesus gives His life that we might have life and have it to the full.
The death that Jesus endured for us upon the cross is remembered through the Mass. When we participate in the Holy Eucharist, we take our place at the foot of the cross, and we experience the greatest love the world has ever known. What is more, we have the awesome privilege of receiving the very Body and Blood of the Lord. Instituted at the Last Supper, the Holy Eucharist is our greatest treasure. It is the sacrament through which Jesus keeps His solemn promise, “I am with you always, even until the end of the age.”
We pray together: St. Jude, help us cherish the gifts we receive from God so that we will tend to them in a responsible manner, share them in practice and love with others, and return them with increase to the Lord.
