On the mother of all sins

A pride can be seen as the most dangerous vice among all. In my opinion it is so for one simple reason: the pride is base of almost all sins and a source of many disastrous events in the history. Let's take a look:

Lucifer was blinded by the light of his intelligence, Adam and Eve were proud enough to question God's will, Cain wanted to be the first one no matter of cost...
All of us have knowledge on the results of mentioned actions.

One can break this dangerous chain only by practising the virtue of humility.

Try it and you will be happy.

Of course the real humility can not be confused with a discouragement and a lack of self-appreciation. The one must lead us to an acknowledgement of the following truth:

The Creator is more important than you, me or any other person in Heaven or earth

Eucharist means thanksgiving

Eucharist means thanksgiving.

In the light of that knowledge lets ask ourselves: do we really and always appreciate Jesus' real presence in the Eucharist?

All of us know that at a Holy Mass He gives us His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity needed for our Salvation . It is true – and you can replace all of above-mentioned Gifts from God with one word which is „the fullness”. There is a good time to ask another question: can you give Him all of what you have got - no matter of cost?

Jesus will be fully appreciated and He will give us His full appreciation if we strife to reply positively to the presented questions.
