Christmas Season Eucharistic Meditation

This Eucharistic Meditation from the Eucharistic Revival is designed to help you spend 30 minutes to an hour in meditation and
silent prayer with Jesus during Eucharistic Adoration.

Radiating Light

The grace I seek: to become radiant with the light of Jesus

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Pause for a few moments, and allow yourself to become aware of Jesus’ gift of himself in the Eucharist.
Realize that at this very moment, the Lord of Life is gazing upon you with great love.
Allow yourself to receive his loving gaze. You are his beloved child … rest in his loving gaze.

Thank Jesus for the gift of himself in the Eucharist.

Ask for the grace: Jesus, help me to radiate your light to the world.

Scripture Meditation – Read slowly, 3-4 times. Allow the words of Scripture to wash over your mind and heart.
Allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you through this passage.

“Arise! Shine, for your light has come, the glory of the Lord has dawned upon you.” Isaiah 60:1

Reflection Question: How has the light of Jesus shone upon me? How is Jesus inviting me to radiate his light? (Allow
yourself to sit with these questions for a while, being attentive to how the Lord is speaking in your heart.)

Read slowly, 3-4 times. Again, allow the words of Scripture to wash over your mind and heart. Let the Holy Spirit speak
to you in a personal way through this passage.

“The angel said to [the shepherds], ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be
for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.’” Luke 2:10-11

Reflection Question: Gazing upon the Eucharist, ask Jesus to help you identify any fear(s) that prevent(s) you from
radiating his light to others. Allow his light to cast that darkness out. Ask Jesus for an increase in his gift of grace so
that you can shine his good news to all the world!

Remain in silence with the Lord. Allow him to speak in the silence, in your heart. Receive his presence. If it helps, write
down what you sense the Lord is communicating to you during this time of prayer.

Closing Prayer: Grant, we pray, almighty God, that, as we are bathed in the new radiance of your incarnate Word, the
light of faith, which illumines our minds, may also shine through in our deeds. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. (Collect, Christmas Mass at Dawn)

Sunday Mass Connection: This Sunday, offer your desire to radiate the light of the Gospel with Jesus to the Father at
Mass. Ask for a deepening of the grace to be Jesus’ light for others.
