Eucharistic Reflection for January

Transformation in Christ

The person who shares worthily in the Eucharist is enabled more and more to live the new law of love given by Christ precisely because Christ communicates Himself to us in the sacrament of the altar.  The moral life of the Christian flows from and is nourished by the inexhaustible source of holiness that is found in the sacraments, especially the Eucharist.  The personal and moral transformation that is sustained by the Eucharist reaches out to every sphere of human life.  The love of Christ can permeate all our relationships: with our families, our friends, and our neighbors.  It can also reshape the life of our society as a whole.  Our relationship with Christ extends to all human beings, whom we are to love with that very same love that forms our communion with the Lord.  This love extends particularly and "preferentially" to the poor and the most vulnerable.  We all need to be consistent in bringing the love of Christ not only to our personal lives, but also to every dimension of our public lives.  It is the role of the laity in particular to transform social relations in accord with the love of Christ, which is carried out concretely in actions that work for the objective common good. Lay people who exercise some form of public authority have a special responsibility to form their consciences in accord with the Church's faith and the moral law, and to serve the human family by upholding human life and dignity.
