Run to Jesus in the Eucharist

The following is a story by Scott Hahn…

Let’s renew and deepen our commitment to Christ by renewing and deepening our commitment to the Holy Eucharist in the blessed sacrament of the altar. This isn’t superstition or hocus-pocus. I was teaching class earlier this week, and about 30 of my students were there and I said to them, “Suppose you’re in your dorm room tonight and you were watching the six o’clock news and all of a sudden you saw Roger Mudd come on and say, ‘There’s evidence now, the report is confirmed now, that Jesus Christ is back on earth and is walking the streets of Jolliot about two blocks from the College of St. Francis.’ You’re hearing this and you’re sitting back with your feet up on a chair and suppose your roommate came in and said, ‘What’s that?’ You say, ‘They say Jesus is walking around a couple of blocks from here, and they’re trying to get an interview with him.’ What would you do?” They all said spontaneously, “I’d run to see him.” Now what would you say to your roommate if he replied, ‘Aw, Jesus is God and God is everywhere; I can talk to Jesus right here or in the bathroom or out in the country, so why go out and see him?’ No, no, if you love Jesus and he’s really there two blocks away, you’d go rush to see him. If you love him. And then I said to my students what I’m going to say to you: He’s less than two blocks away.
