Jesus takes all of our worries away!

I occasionally altar serve at daily mass on Fridays. I love being able to help the priest and be close to the Blessed Sacrament. I am usually very calm and focused during mass, but today for some reason, I constantly worried about everything during mass. I worried if I had put enough hosts in the bowl for communion, and if I had put enough wine into the pitcher. I was beginning to panic. Then during communion, as my lips touched the cup full of Jesus' blood, I was filled with instant calm! I realized that Jesus was taking all of my troubles and worries away from me! Jesus calms the storms in our lives, and fills us with peace! Thanks be to God!


  1. Isn't Jesus amazing? In one INSTANT, He can take ALL of our worry and anxiety; no matter how long it's been building...AND TAKE IT ALL AWAY, leaving in its place HIS PERFECT PEACE!
    I'm happy you had that moment with your Savior today John! YAY for altar servers!

  2. To respond to Judy's question~Yes He is! During consecration when the priest elevates the chalice, I always silently offer Jesus everything; my pains, joys, sorrows~I put them into the chalice to be covered in His Precious Blood knowing He will take care of all of it.
    I do a Meme each Friday called Touch of Our Savior's Hand; I think this may have been a way you felt His touch today. Feel free to join in the Meme. You can read about it on my Blessings For the Day blog.
    God Bless!

  3. Jesus makes all the difference. Good post. God bless.

  4. John,
    Thanks for linking to the Touch of OurSavior's Hand Meme for this week.

  5. Awesome! I too experienced the cleansing power of Jesus' precious blood one day very powerfully. Unfortunately we don't get to receive both species anymore at Mass. It is a shame since Jesus commands us to Drink of His Cup too! God bless,
