"I Have Come To Set The Earth On Fire"
by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday August 14, 2022
The Gospel passage this Sunday is one of my favorites. Jesus cries out, "I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!" (Cf. Luke 12:49)
Now, the question becomes, where can I find this fire? Where are these transforming flames? You will find it in the Church. The Eucharist is the most powerful gift Jesus left humanity because the Eucharist is Christ himself. It’s
not a symbol, like how other Christian groups believe. No, they think it's just bread. Not us. We uphold the teachings of the Apostles. This is why I absolutely love being Catholic! No one else dares preach this. The Eucharist is the fire that will destroy all demonic forces. It will destroy our sins. I want to invite you, come and spend time with Jesus. The more time you spend with Him in prayer, the hotter the fire becomes!
