Ask, seek, knock, be present

By Robert Batch


Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find, knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks, receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

It is hard in today’s culture to really grasp these three steps.  Ask, someone that is not present to us. Seek someone that we cannot see.  Finally Knock, to be answered by someone we don’t even see!

None of us can entirely attain to these lofty ideals, but I will say this that the Lord knows where are hearts are tender and sincere before him, especially in the Eucharist.  I have made it a personal habit to go to the Adoration Chapel every night after work simply to be in His presence.  The amount of grace that you receive by simply being in his presence is something that you can only experience if you truly seek the Lord in the Eucharist.

On this Feast of the Body of Christ, I encourage you to try and find some time during your week to simply seek the Lord in the presence of Him in the Blessed Sacrament.  You never know what the Lord might give you, and you never know what door might open in your life.

What are you waiting for…Go!
