Living the Eucharist
All of Fr. Michael’s formation talks are interconnected to help souls live Ablaze with the Spirituality of the Lamb of God.
In this series, Fr. Michael speaks about the Holy Mass, the Eucharist, as the ultimate prayer of Jesus. We are not called to just goto Mass, but we are called to live the Mass. The Mass is outside of time. This means that we are called to allow Jesus’ Mass to be lived in and through our ordinary life. By baptism we are all a priestly people called to offer ourselves with Him, in Him, and through Him to the glory of God the Father for the salvation of souls. The Mass is the Lived Life of the Lamb. It is a deeply mystical prayer that Jesus invites every believer into. So many people today seems to think that Mass is disconnect from their everyday life. The Mass is the ultimate exchange post where we hand in our life with Jesus, In Jesus, and through Jesus. The Mass is where we tap into the ultimate power of Intercession and join our life to the saving mission of Jesus. Jesus takes our offerings at every mass and transforms them into grace for souls. Jesus wants to pray the Mass through each person and it is only through living the Mass that we enter into Heaven. We all need to live the prayer of Jesus and say, "This is my body given up for you... This is my blood poured out for you."
Fr. Michael wants to help people foster a deeper listening heart - a heart Ablaze with love for the Father! Journaling is an important tool in spiritual formation. Therefore, it is good to learn how to use a prayer journal. Fr. Michaels series on learning how to use a prayer journal will help your spiritual formation to be more fruitful. Fr. Michael also offers a series on the 4 pillar of contemplative prayer which all help you to dive deeper into living the Holy Mass!
Remember this... Contemplation births the Intercessor who is JESUS. When Jesus lives more and more fully through you, then you will share more and more in his mission to fight for souls. This is where and why spiritual warfare begins to happen.
