The same voice that spoke creation into being now declares bread and wine His body and blood. In each repeated consecration, we share in the first (CCC 1410). May my respect for this universal communion of love be reflected in my demeanor.

God is spirit (John 4:24). The angels are spirit (Heb 1:14). Animals are flesh given the breath of life (Gen 7:15). Man is unique in creation—formed from the dust in the image and likeness of God Himself as the pinnacle of creation, he was given the breath of life (Gen 2:7) and dominion over all…

May I live in faithful communion with the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church—the holy Bride who is one in flesh with Christ Himself (CCC 796).

I will rejoice when I am persecuted for the name of Jesus. By meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, may I imitate what is contained and be more fully conformed to Him who suffered and died for me.

In His resurrection is the promise of life everlasting. He rose from the dead, ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God where He has gone to prepare a place for us.
