Prisoner of love

It is a beautiful thing to be in love but also a painful thing! So many misunderstandings can hurt you and sometimes it seems like you love someone more than they love you and it hurts grievously.
However there is only one who understands and who chose to be a "prisoner of love" and that is Jesus Christ!



We, Roman Catholics believe that Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist. At the moment of consecration by the priest, the host becomes the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus. Jesus loves us so much that he never ever wants to be far from us, so before he died he instituted the Eucharist at the last supper.  I cannot even describe how much this love humbles me and makes me realize my own poor efforts at "love". His love is so beautiful and pure and it is truly everything a person could ever want or hope for!



How many insults have we given him? How many times have we not visited him in the blessed sacrament and yet he is always there waiting for us! He truly is the prisoner of love. Take time and meditate on what it means to love someone in that way. We cannot fully understand God's love for us but let us keep our hearts fixed on him and he will show us what true love really is! God bless you All!
