We often hear our Protestant friends convey the need for everyone to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In fact, many, while evangelizing, will come right out and ask the question, “Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?”
As Catholics, we should be able to respond to this question without a breath of hesitation. Our response should convey that our relationship with the Lord goes much deeper than a personal relationship. We, as Catholics in good standing, have an intimate relationship with Christ.
We are Catholic. If we live according to the teachings of the Church and follow the way of Jesus, we can experience the most intimate relationship possible on earth, the Holy Eucharist, the Real Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. Do Catholics have a personal relationship with Christ? You betcha and more! We have a most intimate union with Him on the face of the earth. We have Jesus in the Eucharist.
Ponder: How will you respond when you are asked about your relationship with Jesus Christ?
Reflect: Jn 6:56
Pray: Jesus, thank you for giving me Your Body and Blood so that we can become one every time I receive you worthily in the Eucharist.
