The month of April is dedicated to honoring the Holy Eucharist. This is particularly fitting considering the month's proximity to the institution of the Most Blessed Sacrament. St. Josemaria Escriva gives the following reflection on the relationship between the Eucharist and the resurrection:
Christ is alive. Jesus is the Emmanuel: God with us. His resurrection shows us that God does not abandon his own. He promised he would not: "Can a woman forget her baby that is still unweaned, pity no longer the son she bore in her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you." And he has kept his promise. His delight is still to be with the sons of men....
In a special way Christ stays with us in the daily offering of the Holy Eucharist. That is why the Mass is the center and source of Christian life. In each and every Mass the complete Christ, head and body, is present. Per Ipsum et cum Ipso et in Ipso. For Christ is the way; he is the mediator; in him we find everything. Outside of him our life is empty.... The presence of the living Christ in the host is the guarantee, the source and the culmination of his presence in the world.
