Beneath are five powerful effects of the Eucharist:
1. CONSOLES AND COMFORTS US
In the heat of the day, when we are weak, possibly discouraged and even in desolation, the most Holy Eucharist comforts and consoles us. Study Mt. 11:28-30… “Come to me and I will give you rest…”
2. STRENGTHENS VIRTUES AND WEAKENS SINS AND VICES.
Each time we receive Holy Communion we receive the “Total Christ”: the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus. Safe to say we can receive both a mind transplant and a Heart-Transplant. Saint Paul expresses: “Put on the mind of Christ.” Then he says: “You have the mind of Christ.” After receiving Holy Communion you indeed do have the mind of Christ.
The Holy Eucharist fills our soul and even our body with energy to carry out at times super-human works. What fuel is to a car, Eucharist is to the soul—power and energy!
A secondary effect of the reception of the most Holy Eucharist is healing of our daily ailment. The Council of Trent expresses at such: Holy Communion is the antidote to our daily infirmities. Saint Faustina suffering dreadful pulmonary issues, received Holy Communion and she felt like a spiritual electric current surge through her body and experienced true healing!
Jesus expresses: “ I am the Bread of Life, whoever eats my Body and drinks by Blood will have everlasting life and I will raise Him up on the last day.” (Jn. 6—“Bread of life” discourse) That implies those who receive the Holy Eucharist with lively faith, occasionally (hopefully every day if possible) and with fiery fervor and love will be saved!
May Our Lady, who formed the most Sacred Heart of Jesus in her womb intercede for you and obtain for you the grace to fall in love with Mass, Holy Communion as well as daily Holy Communion. Then may you become an apostle of the Eucharist!
