"The Church draws her life from the Eucharist. This truth does not simply express a daily experience of faith, but recapitulates the heart of the mystery of the Church. In a variety of ways she joyfully experiences the constant fulfillment of the promise: “Lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age” (Mt 28:20), but in the Holy Eucharist, through the changing of bread and wine into the body and blood of the Lord, she rejoices in this presence with unique intensity. " - Ecclesia de Eucharistia (Pope St. John Paul II)
The month of April is dedicated to the Most Holy Eucharist, as Holy Week typically falls during this month. God's timing is always perfect, and it is during this month - coincidentally - that He asks the majority of the world to be in His presence spiritually.
In our souls, we feel His absence; we yearn to have Him near us, to fortify and sanctify us. We desire to give Him the honor, reverence, and love He deserves. Perhaps, God has allowed this time of His absence, so that we may increase in our devotion and faith in the Real, True Presence of God in the Most Blessed Sacrament - that we may hunger for Him all the more and never take for granted of having His Body and Blood within us. In essence, that we may recognize we really do need Him.
Litany of the Most Blessed Sacrament
Let us pray: O God, Who under a marvelous Sacrament has left us a memorial of Thy Passion; grant us; we beseech Thee; so to venerate the sacred mysteries of Thy Body and Blood, that we may ever perceive within us the fruit of Thy Redemption. Thou, Who livest and reignest forever and ever. Amen.
