He is Really Present

Last Sunday, those of us at Community Sunday had quite an experience. At the end of our excellent lunch, we began to watch a documentary about a recent miracle involving the Eucharist in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The first half of the 14-minute video explained the incredible details which I have summarized below. The second half is a recap of the miracle by an American priest which helped all of us to know exactly what happened. As someone in our crowd said, “you could hear a pin drop” while the video was playing. It was very moving!

I explained to the group that this is part of our new “family evangelization.” The idea is for you, the faithful parishioners of Assumption, to send this video to your family members. Much of the discussion after the documentary centered on exactly how to do that. We explained that the video is posted on the parish’s website, and that you can direct your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, siblings and others there. Or, you can copy and paste this linkhttps://youtube.com/watch?v=UXuLKaLVQc – and email it to them. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us in the rectory at any time.

All of us were amazed at what the video showed. The physical evidence “proves” that Jesus is truly and really present in the Eucharist – it’s really His flesh and blood! We have taken that on in faith all of our lives, but this miracle (which has not yet been formally approved by the Church) helps us so much to know without a doubt that it’s real. Jesus continues to perform miracles to help our faith, and He will help the faith of your family members with this incredible event.

We’ve already received feedback from some parishioners that their families are very interested in this video. Please God, we pray, pray, pray: bless this new endeavor to bring your children and our children fully back to you, especially in the Eucharist.

May you know the peace of Christ,

Fr Greg
