When a marriage ends, so does the intimacy between spouses. Not merely sexual intimacy, but that deep connection that spouses have with each other… being one heart, one mind, one soul as well as one body. This loss of intimacy on so many levels can shake you to the core, leaving you with nothing but emptiness.
But, you are not alone in suffering your loss. God is not only close to you during this time, He is present within you – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each time you receive Holy Communion, you are united with God, the Blessed Trinity, in the deepest and most personal way, and God resides in you.
This is Divine intimacy and no other type of intimacy can be more precious, more loving, more valuable. What a tremendous gift! I encourage you to receive Holy Communion as often as possible, especially as we approach the Feast of Corpus Christi next month.
I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. – John 6: 35.
