Dissing and disrespecting God
Sometimes during the day I get a deep longing for the Reception of the Eucharist and being a jerk I pass it by easily. I am disgusted with myself. I had an arrangement with a priest to go to him for confession and afterwards go the the altar and under his suggestion, way actually I received one of the Reserved Host. This eminently good priest understood that I wanted to receive my Most Holy Sacrifice in the way that kept me at least sinless as far as it was possible for me to be. I mean for a short while at least. I shall eternally pray for him as I do so often. Do you not think I was not tempted on the short walk from the confessional to the altar? You bet I was. It was surprising someone was often in the Church and lined up beside me. Often I was disturbed by this as so few in the parish went to confession. I was afraid many times by the question how does this effect my sacrifice?
You know another fault that irritates me is this Christ took a hot evening and day to spend a while being severely tortured. He received a sign of love as a betrayal. My question is this how many of you take 30 minutes to confess your sin before a priest. Have you no respect for the Eucharist that you take chances on receiving Him sinfully. Of course not He had better behave your way or else you will find another pastime for Sundays like watching the sports gladiators severely injuring each other for money
