Contemplating the Eucharist
Jesus said, “Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able . . . Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets’; and He will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you are from; depart from Me, all you evildoers.’ In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth . . . . (Luke 13:24-28)
As Catholics, we must never presume we can receive the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus in the Eucharist each Mass, and then routinely disobey Christ and historic Church teaching the rest of the week.
That would be a very dangerous lifestyle choice.
