(This post was inspired by Victor's excellent post here.)
If Jesus was in front of you, would you take him and toss Him carelessly over your shoulder?
Would you grab at Him, nearly crushing Him with your hand?
Would you reach for Him mindlessly while thinking about the traffic you'd face leaving?
Would you hold out your hand with nonchalance, with the other hand in your pocket?
Would you mutter something under your breath out of habit?
Of course not.
You would welcome him with full attention, thanks, reverence and humility.
You would cradle him with hands like a throne ... fit for the King that He is.
And you would shout Amen! so the world really believed that you really believed.
You would treat Him just like you do every time you receive the Eucharist...
