The Holy Eucharist

JESUS SPEAKS ABOUT THE HOLY EUCHARIST.

Listen to Me, all who love Me.

I have a message for you

about the Holy Eucharist.

I am a consuming fire of love,

Jesus Christ, God-made-man:

all-compassionate and all-holy.

And I am Present amongst you

at every Mass, and in the tabernacle,

under sacramental signs.

Some of My friends in past ages

have been on fire with gratitude.

They have used every means

to become worthy of My friendship.

Some have given their whole lives

in contemplation of the Godhead.

I do not call each of you

to follow the same vocation.

But I ask you all to remember

that I, Who was holy then,

am no less holy today.

I am Present ‘whole and entire’,

to give myself to you completely

in the sacrament of your salvation.

Yet the welcome I receive today

is often lukewarm or cold.

Many of you approach Me

unprepared or poorly instructed,

or lacking love and gratitude,

or even ignorant of My Divinity.

Some attend Mass only rarely,

or neglect to fast in My honour

before Holy Communion,

or fail to confess their serious sins.

Many fail to genuflect in church,

or fail to wear modest clothing.

Some chatter loudly to one another,

in My consecrated ‘house of prayer’.

These are some of the reasons

why I ask you to act with reverence,

and to honour My Real Presence,

here, on the threshold of Heaven.

Remember this, My children:

after the words of Consecration,

what you see on the holy altar

is no longer bread and wine.

This is My Sacred Body and Blood,

My Soul and My Divinity,

It is I, Jesus, risen from the dead.

My Holy Angels surround the altar,

bowing low in adoration.

The Holy Saints are close to you,

united with you in prayer.

The Holy Souls , now being purified,

pray with you at every Mass.

My Holy Sacrifice of the Cross

is re-presented here, for your sakes,

through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Mass is unique, on earth,

as worthy praise of the Father of Light.

And in Holy Communion I come to you

to offer you holiness and Eternal Life.

ELIZABETH WANG – MAY SHE REST IN PEACE

We are sorry to have to share the news that Elizabeth died on Saturday evening, 10th September. 2016 She died peacefully, in her own room at home, with all her immediate family around her bedside. Some of you will have heard that she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer only three months ago, so the end has come very quickly. It was only six weeks ago that she was on pilgrimage to Lourdes with her family and diocese. In many ways the swiftness has been a mercy, and it’s a consolation for all of us that her suffering is now at an end.

We are especially grateful for these last few days. We have had so much time together as a family – talking, listening, praying – and with the four grandchildren constantly running around. Elizabeth was surrounded by so much love, and she gave us so much love, even in her weakness and vulnerability. She has been looked after by many kind people with such tenderness. She received the last sacraments from Stephen, and we were able to celebrate Mass together in her room just a few hours before she died. She was at peace and longing to meet the Lord.

She will be missed so much, but we are full of such gratitude to God for the gift of her life, and for her faith. She had such a love for Christ, for his Church, and for his Blessed Mother Mary, and this has touched us all.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this illness. Please pray for her and for all those who mourn her now, especially our father Kin. Please pray for the continuing work and mission of Radiant Light, which was so close to her heart. With our best wishes and our prayers for you and your intentions.

Fr Stephen Wang, Chris Wang, Mary Figg
