Christ Present in the Eucharist - 1

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 02, 2005

From an address given by Msgr. George A. Kelly (died August 13, 2004) at the Franciscan University of Steubenville (July 13, 1997):

While on an errand of mercy in 1949, both of my parents were seriously injured in an automobile accident. When a chief surgeon decided to operate on my 60-year-old mother's knee, her family physician intervened to say, "Don't let him do it. He could ruin that leg. The worst thing that could happen, if you leave it alone, is that you'll have a stiff leg for the rest of your life." A pause, and then my mother's question. "Will I be able to genuflect?"

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
