Bishop Matano – “The Eucharist sustains us”

June 11th, 2016, Promulgated by Ben Anderson

If you haven’t read the Bishop’s latest column yet, do yourself a favor and go read it:

The Eucharist sustains us – The Most Reverend Salvatore R. Matano, Bishop of Rochester

The horizontal dimension appears to have overshadowed the vertical dimension in our relationship with God. Simple acts of reverence such as genuflecting and kneeling as prescribed in the liturgical rubrics of the church — absent, of course, physical ailments that do not make this possible — are not as evident as they once were. And yet, the Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us that “Before so great a sacrament, the faithful can only echo humbly and with ardent faith the words of the Centurion: ‘Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul will be healed’” (Number 1386).

To get the full experience make sure you use a Providential? accent when reading aloud in your mind.

    Bishop Matano’s sermons and writings are powerful stuff. Nothing fluffy about them. He delivers the truth of the Catholic Faith. The Bishop’s sermons at the deacon and priest ordinations this year were also very strong, indeed. I would like to have copies of those.
