Sweet Tweets for 2/28/14 — On the Essential Nature of the Eucharist and Lenten Resources

Let’s keep Pope Francis in our prayers today in a special way. The Vatican is reporting that he cancelled today’s commitments due to a “minor ailment” and slight fever. Honestly, with the pace our Holy Father keeps, he needs our prayers every day. Here’s hoping that he’s tucked away in bed, getting some good rest!

His illness comes after a tweet this morning that was a wonderful reminder on the centrality of the Eucharist in our lives. In moments when I feel myself going too many different directions, I would do well to remember to spend extra time in silence before the Blessed Sacrament. It is in his true presence that I’ll find the grace I need!

Thank you to John Clem for making this weekly feature possible!
