Let’s come to the knowledge of God’s presence….

1Corinthians 2:9
“Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”

As we gather at mass, God is present in the Word (as we read sacred scripture), He is present in the Eucharist (the body and the blood), and in all of us (the congregation). As the body of Christ we are one in all things. We are one in our joy, our hurting, and in our pain.

With the Eucharist being one of the biggest reasons for my conversion to the Catholic faith, this is one of my favorite songs we sing at mass.

…“our hearts and our spirits are nurtured by grace, it is Jesus who fills us, He is here in this place”.

LYRICS

In This Place

(Trevor & Victoria Thomson)

We are all hungry people
We need shelter and strength
We are one in our hurting
We are one in our pain

In our suffering and sadness
We are saved by the grace
Of the power and the spirit
That is here in this place

chorus
We are gathered at table
As one in the Lord
We are gathered as people
Who are living the word

Our hearts and our spirits
Are nurtured by grace
It is Jesus who fills us
He is here in this place

All our lives are a mystery
We seek not where they lead
We are asked now to trust you
And we know we must believe

As our feet become Christ feet
We go forth with the grace
Of the power and the spirit
That is here in this place

chorus
Though the world may tell us
To look at ourselves
We reach out to another
Where suffering dwells

As our hands become Christ’s hands
We are healed by the grace
Of the power and the spirit
That is here in this place

chorus
In the bread that is broken
Is the Christ that restores
As we take now receive Him
We find love evermore

As the bread becomes body
We are filled with the grace
Of the power and the spirit
That is here in this place
