Stay Near the Fire

On a cold night it’s a good idea to stay near the fire. When our faith cools it’s a better idea to stick to the warmth of Christ’s presence. One of the reasons for adoration of the Eucharist is that the experience fires up our love for Jesus. Instead of being detached and dull Catholics, we are on fire with Christ.
