It Changed the Way I Receive Eucharist

Last Saturday, someone voted me for ‘first woman priest.’ (See how I responded here.)

That was interesting. God bless her.

But seriously, the Catholic Women’s Luncheon turned out to be a beautiful event, with powerful fruits. Women have overwhelmed me with kind words in response to my talk, “Lift Up Your Hearts,” saying that it changed the way they approach the Mass and receive Holy Communion. I’m so happy! All glory to God for his love..

  1. Hi Angela, I stumbled across your blog site via a SQPN live cast. It was the one with Elizabeth Scaliai. On it you mentioned that you had done this presentation and so here I am.

    Your presentation was beautiful and inspiring. Actually, it was more than that – it was scary. Although I am what I thought was a committed catholic I had never fully connected the dots on an emotional level between the living bread and Jesus love. I think my belief in Jesus and the Eucharist has been one of accepting the intellectual arguments along with a drop of faith. However, now I get it. I understand what Jesus was really saying.

    Thank you for your gift.

    1. Francis, welcome to my blog! Thank you for sharing your reaction. I understand what you mean about the Eucharist being “scary” in a way, because God’s love is so immense and powerful! More powerful than all the evil in the world! But after having prayed for the grace to know and embrace this love, I’m not scared of it. Your words encourage me to continue sharing this Good News! Thanks again. Peace.
