Father, they are your gift to me.
— John 17:24

Do you see yourself as a gift to Jesus? You are! Jesus’ gratitude towards his Father is manifest in His desire that “we may all be one” in communion with one another, sharing in the love and glory that God continues to pour forth. The Mass is the source and summit of this union, our holy common union, where we have the opportunity to be “perfectly one”, radiating a complete unity visible to the world. Each time you receive Holy Eucharist, pray and give thanks for this gift of divine unity!
