The Holy Eucharist...

Painting by Alexander Coosemans

“The purpose of the Eucharist
 is your conversion,
your turning away 
from your own will
so that it may gradually
into your service to others.
You go to Holy Communion
to be converted,
to establish the reign of Christ
in your heart from then on,
and for His Will
to become your 
supreme value.
Every reception of the Eucharist
should confirm your adherence 
to do His Will.
Consequently, you should wish
that Jesus would foil your plans.
The Eucharist should prepare you for this:
It should contribute
 the gradual demise
of your egoism,
allowing Christ to
grow within you."

Father Tadeusz Dajczer - Polish priest
