Just Jesus and Me
The Son of God is my Savior, he is my true Beloved, the one who I know gave up his life for me so that I can spend eternity with his Father in Heaven. As the Son having two natures he is both one true God and one true man as perfect God and perfect man who is present to me spiritually and physically in my daily life. I experience his love, consolation, and compassion everyday in the Eucharist as I receive his true presence during mass and I can see him through my Catholic faith. He is the Bread of Life where each morning I am able to be nourished of a spiritual hunger that gives me the strength, courage, and energy to continue on the rest of my day knowing that Jesus is with me. I knew that as I discerned with different religious communities the one, major requirement for me now to even visit a religious community was their devotion to Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. As a religious Sister I know that I will need to be sustained by the Eucharist by receiving him daily and I will need to spend time with him in daily Adoration in order to fulfill my apostolates and service for the Lord. How can I serve God and his people if I am not nourished first by the Son of God? How can I imitate the works of the Good Shepherd if I myself do not experience his compassion and gentleness?
