Father Broom gives a talk on June 10,2012 – The Solemnity of Corpus Christi.
How did the Saints love the Eucharist? Their example can inspire us to worship, appreciate, respect, and give thanks for this Gift of Gifts – Jesus truly present in the Holy Eucharist.
Fathers uses the following Saints to give us practical ways to love the Eucharist more each day:
St. Charbel Makhluf – Preparation and Thanksgiving
St. Tarcisius – Defense and Protection of the Eucharist
Blessed Jacinta and Francisco of Fatima – Adoration
St. Dominic Savio – Thanksgiving so profound it leads to ecstasy
St. Anthony of Padua – All creation bows before the Eucharist
St. Philip Neri – Deeper more profound belief in the Eucharist
St. Padre Pio and St. Catherine of Siena – Total reliance on the Eucharist
St. Anthony Mary Claret – Living in the perpetual presence of the Eucharist within
St. Margaret Clitherow – Martyrdom to protect priests
St. Juan Diego – Sacrificing our life for the Eucharist
Blessed Jose Luis Sanchez del Rio – Viva Cristo Rey!
