The Eucharist as the Greatest Miracle
(CEV) “The Notebooks 1944”, p. 644
Jesus says: “How do you see Me? In a glorious robe? No. You see Me as Jesus of Nazareth, the Teacher, the Man.
What is the Eucharist?
The greatest, holiest miracle of God. It is God.
It is God because in the Eucharist is the Son of God, God as the Father, God made flesh out of Love -that is, through God who is Love, and by the work of Love, namely, by the work of the Third Person.
It is God because it is a miracle of love, and God is where love is. Love testifies to God more than every word or devotion or act or work. I, the Author of this miracle, which is a witness to the power of God and to his nature —Love— give honor to this miracle. To tell you that it is true, to tell you that it is holy, and to tell you that it should be venerated with the maximum respect.
Jesus the Teacher adores his Divine Nature in the Eucharist. This is why I appear to you as the Teacher, not as the glorious Jesus. The glorious Jesus could not adore anything. The adoration of all that exists is directed towards Him, for He is the God who has returned to his Kingdom. But the Son of man can still show his will to venerate the Ark containing Me as God —the Eucharistic Bread— and I do so. To teach you to do so.
Why am I on the left? Also to teach you. The priest, while exercising his priestly functions, is worthy of the maximum respect. And I assure you of the fact that I obey his command and descend as Blood to wash your hearts and descend as Flesh to nourish your spirits. Learn from Me, who am humble, to have humility.[…]
Maria Valtorta: The Notebooks
“These Notebooks belong to a category of mystical literature which the Catholic Church has long been familiar with: that of so-called “private revelations.” A private revelation is not binding for the faith of Christians, but its value is to be measured by its capacity to instruct and inflame souls, spurring them to love God more and apply divine teachings to their everyday lives. In the confidence—and the conviction—that this work superabounds in these inspired qualities, we offer it for the spiritual nourishment of readers. —David Murray
