The Veil is Removed

2 Corinthians 3:16-18

but whenever a person turns to the Lord the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. All of us, gazing with unveiled face on the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, as from the Lord who is the Spirit.

Earlier, I wrote about Eucharistic Adoration. The above Scripture quotation from St. Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians can be illustrating the effect that Adoration can have on an individual.

We are in the Real Presence of Jesus. The Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ is there, mysteriously and inexplicably in the form of bread. When we enter into His Presence, whether it is in an Adoration Chapel or in a Church, we come before the Lord. We are unveiled before Him, and we gaze into His physical form. In the presence of God we cannot be unchanged. We are slowly being transformed, as St. Paul wrote, into what we see. We are transformed into the image of Christ.

Do you ever feel different when you are in the presence of someone great? That by being near them you absorb some of their greatness and charisma? Who is greater than Jesus Christ, the Son of God and who is God??

Visit an Adoration Chapel. There are two links in the sidebar, “Mass Times and Adoration”, and “Eucharistic Adoration” that contain times and locations worldwide where you can visit Jesus in the Real Presence of the Blessed Sacrament and be transformed by Him.

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)
