This past Sunday, 5/17/2020, Liên Đoàn Thánh Gia hosted the VEYM online Mass. During his homily, Fr. Hai Ho, OFM Cap. reminded us all that we are all connected through an invisible string from our hearts to the Eucharist. I was reminded of another Huynh Trưởng’s story I heard years ago about how she was no longer going to be able to see her friend again, but that friend said, “I will see you in the Eucharist.”
Later that day, I tuned into Đoàn Tôma Thiện‘s Eucharistic Adoration online. As I looked at the monstrance, I remembered the statement, “I will see you in the Eucharist.” At that moment, I realized this is the reason why I still feel connected to you and that you do love me.
Because despite the distance that separates us and time we have not spoken to each other, I see you in the Eucharist.
