Having an Elijah Moment? Turn to the Eucharistic Lord for Strength

Listen to my homily for the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time:

Mass readings for the day.

Elijah suffered terrible weariness through the prophetic vocation God gave him.  God strengthened him to do what he asked him.  God will strengthen weary hearts with the Bread of the strong, the Most Holy Eucharist, who is Jesus Christ himself, King of prophets and rest for the weary.  Those who draw near to the Savior who waits for us in holy communion will experience his fortification, strength, mercy, grace, and friendship.
