When Christ is present, when Christ is with us, evil can not remain. When Jesus is with us, so is the Trinity. When the Trinity is with us, our very Creator is at hand. And God is infinitely more powerful than Lucifer and all the fallen angels.

While many of us struggle to find a way in which to lessen the illness and darkness of our world -- to chase away evil spirits -- such is already available to us through Jesus and the power He set loose at the Last Supper, which was the first Eucharist.

It was at the Last Supper that Jesus took the bread, broke it, and gave it to His disciples, saying, "This is My body to be given for you. Do this as a remembrance of Me." He did the same with the cup of wine. "This cup is the new covenant in My Blood, which will be shed for you."

They were the most powerful words since Creation. It was the denouement of Our Savior's very mission. It was a climax -- a high point -- of the ages. Christ was showing why He had come and the incredible nature of His rescue mission.

By sharing bread and wine, the disciples would be invoking the power of His entire mission. It was a covenant meal at Passover. They would be tapping into God's power. They would be touching His garment. No wonder the ritual would survive for centuries! No wonder miracles would be associated with the Eucharist!

When we take the Eucharist we are the bleeding woman touching the robe of Christ (Matthew 9:20) and feeling the healing power, and we are the wedding guests at Cana, seeing His first miracle, and we are sitting with Him as He speaks His last to the disciples.

Through the ages it has been proven that the Eucharist takes us into the New Testament. It gives us true insight.

Are you confused or scared about current times? Are you trying to make sense of what is going on around us?

If you feel the least bit scared, you need the Eucharist. You need its insight. You need the calmness of nearness to the Lord. The Eucharist is where we should seek advice. The Eucharist is what guides us in uncharted territory. For hidden in it is the key to how we should live the current troubling times and what we can expect in the future. Hidden in the Eucharist is the way to humility and faith. Hidden in the Host is the key to love. 

In the Eucharist, most importantly, are the keys to Heaven.
